I have been looking forward to this day for a very long time… See, ever since she moved out of the house and I took the larger room, I have never been so sure that the room is mine as I am now. Thank you, Shane. No, seriously though, the bride today, Elina my sister, is a jewel in my life. There is not enough time for me to tell the all that Elina means to me and to the people that she loves. I’ll just stick to three main points that I find stand out in her that I have never even shared with the most beautiful person in our family….today …haha
1. My sister is the best sister in the world. She values family more than she values everything else.
2. My sister is so responsible that when she rebelled in the year that it was natural for her to do so, I thought that my world would collapse…You scared me, dear.
3. Elina has always had the kind of energy that attracts wonderful people. Shane is evidence of the same. Shane and I have grown so close that storekeepers and fast food attendants often tell us that we look alike, must be brothers…well, hope we look like me then…
When the value of a mathematical equation constantly increases or declines by a certain factor, then the function is said to be of an exponential type. For example, if a boy bounces a ball, the height at which it bounces back reduces after each particular bounce. Similarly, just like population of the world constantly multiplies and the population increases, as well as in the case of bank savings with a constant interest rate, these computations can be said to be exponential. Therefore, one can predict the sum of the funds after a certain period of time by plotting the values on a graph or using a computer. These functions are identified whereby the variable in the calculation is the power. Y = ABx illustrates an exponential.
