In order to graph an exponential function, you will need to know what the graph looks like. Use the following link to read of how exponential graphs look.http://www.purplemath.com/modules/graphexp3.htm

Use data from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_populationChoose 3 countries to compare their growth in population by graphing. Create a slideshow on Google Slides with 3 exponential graphs, one from each country.Answer the following:1. What aspects make population growth an exponential function?2. What differs about the countries that makes their graph different from each other?
