In the case of an exponential function, the amount of money he has would have to influence the amount of money he makes. For example in a savings account, the more money you have in it, the more interest you'll get (you'd get more interest on a million dollars than a hundred dollars). Thus, it would grow exponentially.

In the case of a linear function, the amount of money he has would be directly proportional to some other factor, **not** the amount of money he has.

In this case, the amount of money he earns is directly proportional to the number of weekends he works. If he works 1 weekend, he gets $25, 2 weekends will get him $50, 3 weekends gets him $75, and so on. If we were to plot these on a graph, we would see a straight line. So this case is a **linear relationship**.
