For an exponential function in the form $y=a\cdot {b}^{x}$

If b>1 , the function is increasing and is an exponential growth function.

If 0<b<1 , the function is decreasing and is an exponential growth function.

Because b= 2 > 1, then the function represents an exponential growth. The exponential growth function is given by:

$A(t)=a(1+r{)}^{t}$

where a is the initial amount, (1+r) is the growth factor, and r is the rate of growth.

Using the value of b,

$b=1+r\to 2=1+1$

Hence, the base in terms of the rate of decay is:

$y=450(1+1{)}^{x}$

and r is the rate of growth:

$r=1\text{or}100\mathrm{\%}$

This means that the function increases by 100% as x increases by 1.
