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 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,
$$b=1+r \rightarrow 2=1+1$$
Hence, the base in terms of the rate of decay is:
$$y=450(1+1)^x$$
and r is the rate of growth:
$$r=1 \text{ or } 100\%$$
This means that the function increases by 100% as x increases by 1. 2021-06-11
