I wish the chart for my stocks and funds looked like that.

•You mean exponential growth right :D

The curve is hyperbolic in form, and expresses exponential growth.

true, not knocking that you described it correctly, just I rarely, if ever, hear it referred that way... might be the diff between where we work..

In any case, nice mathematical reference... a toast to you :D

nice to see math being put to good use around here!
(i teach Algebra II and Pre-Cal at the high school level)

Of course, the whole point of the post was to highlight the accelerating rate of new member registrations. Over half of the current members signed on in just the last two years (yes that includes me - I'm not making an editorial statment, just an empirical observation).

Obviously I gave the thread the wrong title.

Hyperbolas are for trigonomotry; exponential would be more like parabolas.

Just saying.
