all real numbers

*y*=

*x*

A = 6, B = 4

A = 3, B = 5

Exponential function. (The

*x*is the exponent.)Power function. (The

*x*is the base.) We could also consider it to be a polynomial of degree 5.Algebraic function.

Polynomial of degree 4.

# Spanish b and v

Note also that the letters

BandVhave exactly the same pronunciation, and their names are pronounced exactly alike. Some colorful expressions are used to indicate which letter is being used, such asB de burroandV de vaca(roughly, “B as in burro” and “V as in vaca”). SometimesBis referred to asbe grande(“big B”) and theVasuveorve chica(“little V”).
