When an experiment began, the temperature of a substance was −5°C . During the experiment, the temperature rose exponentially. The scientist will sketch a graph of the situation, where x represents the time after the experiment began, and y represents the temperature of the substance at that time. The scientist will only sketch the graph in the quadrant or quadrants for which it makes sense to. In which quadrant or quadrants will the scientist sketch the graph? A. Quadrants I and II only B. Quadrants I and IV only C. Quadrant I only D. Quadrants I, II, III, and IV

OpenStudy (yuii):

A?

OpenStudy (royalranger):

Do you know what an exponential function looks like?

OpenStudy (yuii):

No.

OpenStudy (royalranger):

It varies from problem to problem, generally it looks like: |dw:1481591814766:dw|

OpenStudy (yuii):

So does this make the answer C?

OpenStudy (yuii):

From your graph.

OpenStudy (royalranger):

My graph was not meant to show your particular problem. First you need to start by labeling your x and y axes and sketch what it would look like.

OpenStudy (yuii):

How would I graph x and y when I don't have any provided information about it?
