# Identify the function as exponential growth or exponential decay.Then identify the growth or decay factor. y=5.2*3^x

Exponential growth and decay
Identify the function as exponential growth or exponential decay.Then identify the growth or decay factor. $$\displaystyle{y}={5.2}\cdot{3}^{{x}}$$
Consider the exponential function $$\displaystyle{y}={a}\cdot{b}^{{x}}$$ it is an exponential growth if b>1 and exponential decay if 0 It is given that $$\displaystyle{y}={5.2}\cdot{3}^{{x}}$$
