Let them sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out the health-promoting qualities. It is very important not to...

How are exponential growth patterns similar to and different from linear growth patterns?
They are similar because the population increases over time in both cases, and also because you are using a mathematical model for a real-world process. They are different because exponential growth can get dramatically big and bigger after a fairly short time. Linear growth keeps going up the same amount each time. Exponential growth goes up by more each time, depending on what the amount (population) is at that time. Linear growth can start off bigger than exponential growth, but exponential growth will always...
