Harry Byrne looks the job based on those highlights. I know it's only Zebre but surely he'll be overtaking his brother soon.

Healy is pretty good, especially for someone who looks like a 14 year old. My first time really seeing him.

elite sports are going ahead thankfully, schools are open and travel is 10km from home.

What's the difference between 4+ there? Just the travel distance I think.

Sorry bud, e^x is an example of an exponential function but exponential functions are given by a^x and these functions will grow if both a and x are greater than zero .

Whilst X to the power of 0.04 is indeed a geometrical progression, it does not constitute exponential growth, which is generally understood to be of the form : e to the power of x, where x > 1 . A geometric progression is just a discrete version of the exponential function. The definition of an exp...
