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 @ is the growth rate.
If the base, b > 1, then it shows exponential growth. If it is 0 Note that even though the base is greater than 1, the exponent’s form can result to the exponential function's range having BOTH positive and negative values. Therefore, this function neither represents an exponential growth nor an exponential decay.
