Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically the large your scaling factor, `coefficients in front`, the larger your yvalues will be. So the yvalue when x=5,for instance, plotted on y=4x\(^2\) compared to y=5x\(^2\) will be `less` narrow. Another way to look at it, is if the scaling factor, or coefficient, gets `bigger`, then your function will approach \(+\infty\) a LOT laster in the \(+y\) direction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the coefficient determines the "growth" factor so the higher the number the higher the yvalue for that particular x..
