Given that, the population of certain city was 34,000 in year 1995 and percent growth rate is 4%.
a) In linear growth, we have constant number that the output increase for each increase in input.
while in exponential growth, we have percent rate of change.
In this example, the population is increasing by constant percent rate 4%.
Hence, the example is of exponential growth.
