 Question 199692: 2. True or false: The function "f(x) = 4x" grows four times faster than the function "g(x) = x". Explain I am having alot of trouble with these problemsAnswer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2. True or false: The function "f(x) = 4x" grows four times faster than the function "g(x) = x". Explain ----------------- It grows 4 times as fast, which is 3 times faster. Its slope if 4, vs 1 for g(x). For each unit increment of x, f(x) increases 4 units, while g(x) increases 1 unit. -------------- 4 times faster is not the same as four times as fast. Suppose it's 1 time faster? Is that the same rate? If so, then why is it called faster? It's gibberish, which is prevalent on TV, in language, and now in textbooks.
