Step 1
Determine weather for the following function is represent exponential growth or exponential decay. Then graph the function:
f(x)=(0.8)x
There is a general rule for the exponential function depending on the base of exponent as follows:
y=bx b > 1  Represent for exponential growth function.
y=bx 0 < b < 1  Represent for exponential decay function.
For this function,  (0 < b < 1)
This function is represent for exponential decay function.

Radioactive substances decay exponentially. For example, a sample of Carbon14(14C)will lose half of its mass every 5730 years. (In other words, the half-life of 14C is 5730 years.) Let A be the initial mass of the sample. Model the decay of 14C using a discrete-time model... (a) using δt=5730 years. (b) using Δt=1year.
