Tell whether the function represents exponential growth or decay. f(x)=5.9(2.6)^x

Answers (1)

2020-12-03
The given function is: \(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={6.9}{\left({2.6}\right)}^{{x}}\)
Is in the form: \(\displaystyle{y}={a}{\left({b}\right)}^{{x}}\)
Since b=2.6>1
Then the function represents exponential growth.
