Product         Function              Year 1   Year 2   Year 3 Product 1          f(x) = x³                 1            8          27 Product 2         g(x) = x² + 11      12         15          20 Product 3         h(x) = 4^x              4         16          64 Product 4          j(x) = 4x + 8        12        16           20 Product 3 exceeds the prices of other products. x is an exponent of 4, thus, the price increase is exponential.
