 PARA SINGS 08ax2 + bx + c  presents...."Exponential"  (*aka "Brokenhearted", Karmin)--------Official Music Video:  YouTube HereActual Lyrics:  YouTube Here***Oh. Yeeeeah. Uh, common... yeah.She is not just a typical relationTable shows, we suppose, the very foundationO-ho. Thinking polynomial?What is this, what's amiss, I can't use x-squaredDegree three, woe is me, find I'm unpreparedO-ho. Here's a testimonial.Uh-oh, yup.[Rapping]So you think it's a tricky situationDoing your subtracting, yup, finding frustrationFirst diff'rence, next diff'rence, should've tried a powerx as an exponent, (so) it can towerO-ho. Need a common ratio![Chorus]See you should be dividingThose numbers you're deriding.So power up, it's essentialThat you find an exponential model.Come on, that's rightAsymptote at zero?Like a superheroThat base is really influentialWhen you find an exponential model.Common, that's right, ratioWhat's in front, let's be blunt,The y-interceptWhere you start, plays a part, this we must acceptO-ho, the initial value's shown.Oh yeah.Could go up, could go down, Better check that baseCan't be one, that's no fun, but is a test caseO-ho, soon you will be in the zone.No, no, no...[Chorus]See you should be dividingThose numbers you're deriding.So power up, it's essentialThat you find an exponential model.Come on, that's rightAsymptote at zero?Like a superheroThat base is really influentialWhen you find an exponential model.Common, that's right, ratiof(x) = 2(3)^x + 5             .[Rapping]Consider how we began, and give this a scanAsymptote can move and then, gone is your planHandling it first, that you'll have to doHopefully you know - what will make this model true?This kinda thing, it will happen normallyI'm thinking that is why we work so formallyWith the refit, divide to get it,A ratio.[Chorus]See you should be dividingThose numbers you're deriding.So power up, it's essentialThat you find an exponential model.Asymptote at zero?Like a superheroThat base is really influentialWhen you find an exponential model.Common, that's right, rati-rati--Geometric meansJust find an exponentialIf no in-betweensThat pattern goes sequentialO-ho, need a common ratio!Common, that's right, ratio.  Huh.
