Question
Exponential growth and decay asked 2021-03-11
Identify each of the following functions as exponential growth or decay. Then give the rate of growth or decay as a percent. $$\displaystyle{y}={a}{\left(\frac{{5}}{{4}}\right)}^{{t}}$$

## Answers (1) 2021-03-12
$$\displaystyle{y}={a}{\left(\frac{{5}}{{4}}\right)}^{{t}}={a}{\left({1.25}\right)}^{{t}}$$
This is a growth function
Rate of decay is 1.25-1=0.25
That is 25%
Consider an exponential function of the form: $$\displaystyle{y}={b}\cdot{a}^{{x}}$$
If a>1, then it is exponential growth function with growth rate a-1
If a<1, then it is exponential decay function with decay rate 1-a
