Without graphing, determine whether the function \(y = 0.3(1.25)x\) represents exponential growth or decay. State how you made the determination.

For \(a>0\), the exponential function \(y=ab^x\) is a growth if \(b>1\) or a decay if 0.1, then \(y=0.3(1.25)^x\) is an exponential growth.

Determine whether each function is an example of exponential growth or decay. Then find the y-intercept. \(y=100(0.25)^x\)

Determine whether the function represents exponential growth or exponential decay. Identify the percent rate of change. \(y=3(1.88)ty=3(1.88)^t\)

Determine whether each function is an example of exponential growth or decay. Then, find the y-intercept. \(y=25/7(7/5)^x\)

State whether the equation represents exponential growth, exponential decay, or neither. \(y=0.82\cdot 3^x\)
