**Observation:**

**From
the above graphs we can see a pattern beginning to form. When
the exponent is even the graph is closed and when the exponent
is odd the graph is continuous. Also, the smaller the exponent
the more the graph looks like a circle and as the exponent gets
larger the graph becomes more like a square.**

**What do you expect
for the graph of**

**or**

**Based on the information
gathered above I would expect the graph of the function with exponent
of 24 to be closed, but it's shape would favor that of a square.
The graph of the function with exponent of 25 will be a continuous
line.**
