evalute the functions and compare the changing rate

Evaluate the functions for the value of x given as 1,2,4,8,and 16. Describe the difference in the rate at which each function changes with increasing value of x; rank the function from fastest-growing to slowest-growing?
1) f(x)=3x+2
2) f(x)=x^2+5x+6
3) f(x)=x^3+3x^2+2x+1
4) f(x)=e^x
5) f(x)=log x
