I would assume that dominates basically means which climbs faster. In a race to infinitely high in space, which function wins. Now generally we know x to be a variable. We don't know what it is, but we can plug numbers into it and see what our answers our. P, though, we have to assume is a constant, a number which does not change. So assuming P does not change, let's just invent a number. Let's say P is 2 \[x ^{2}\] \[2^{x} \] Now we can make a little more sense of this. As x gets bigger and bigger and bigger, which function wins the race to infinity? Can you kinda see what's going to happen and which function is going to get higher faster?

@Loser66 I didnt tell him to put that :/ It was something I was planning on showing him before, but I guess he wanted to try and prevent people from interrupting.

So basically 2^x "dominates" because it will eventually be closer to infinity than 2^x? Well that makes sense! Thank you. P.S. : What did I put down 0=?

0 =? Not sure what you're asking.

I wrote down that 2^x dominates. But I meant what did I put down to prevent people from interrupting?

No, not you, I was being teased about another question. Someone earlier posted a question that specifically asked for me.
