Hi my name is jenny and I am a sophomore.

I was just wandering if there was anyway I could ask you a few math questions. Or if I could request something from you.

I was wandering if you had any real life examples *like of gas prices* or something like that in a chart that is

A linear function

An absolute value function

A quadratic function

And a cube function….

Like a chart that has the shape of that like for quadratic the chart of a real life situation would be in the shape of a parabola. I would need an example of all four and not the same real life situation…. I know its a lot but I would really just be so thankful if you could do that for me :D

I would really appreciate a response and thank you for your time.
