We are given the equation.

\(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{2}}\) times \(\displaystyle{e}^{{3}}{x}\)

2Find the pieces of the function (a and r)

\(\displaystyle{a}=\frac{{1}}{{2}}\)

r = 3x

3Go by Natural Base Functions.

If a > 0 and r > 0, function is exponential growth function.

If a > 0 BUT r < 0, function is exponential DECAY function.
