Remember the formula for an exponential function is represented by
\(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={a}{b}^{{x}}\) where a is the initial value and b is the growth rate.

If the base, b>1, then it shows exponential growth. If it is 0

If the base, b>1, then it shows exponential growth. If it is 0

**Note that the base is greater than 1 in the function. Therefore, this equation represents exponential growth.**
