Exponential growth and decay
Tell whether the function represents exponential growth or decay. a(x)=150(1.1)^x

2020-12-06
The given function is: $$\displaystyle{a}{\left({x}\right)}={150}{\left({1.1}\right)}^{{x}}$$
Is in the form: $$\displaystyle{y}={a}{\left({b}\right)}^{{x}}$$
Since b=1.1>1
Then the function represents exponential growth.
