STEP 1: Prepare a table of the x and the y-values

STEP 2: Identify a pattern in the tables

Calculate the difference in the x values

STEP 3: Calculate the difference in the y values


Notice that the difference in the x-values go up by 2 steadily and the difference in the y values go up as they are  multiplied with 3.  Since there is a steady increase, this is an exponential growth function
