Unformatted text preview: Growth Rate : The rate(%) at which it grows or decays B = 1 + the rate(%) Graphical Effects of a and b in the form y = a(b) A – where the graph intersect the yaxis B – the rate at which it grows or decays, steep or gradual Ex. Writing Linear and Exponential Formulas from Given Points Given the points (2, 6) and (4, 96) Write the linear and exponential equations of the functions which pass through those points Linear: Exponential: x Y = 7(.5) Y = 3(1.5) Writing Linear and Exponential Formulas from a Table of Values X 2 4 6 8 10 F(x) 2 4 8 16 32 64 Linear: Exponential: Definitions of “e” 1. e = lim (1 + x ) x 2. e = lim ( 1 + (1/x)) x ∞ Constant Rate of Change : Linear y = mx + b m = rate of change 1/x x Percent Rate of Change: Exponential y = ab b = 1 + the rate of change Continuous Rate of Change Exponential y = ae k = continuous rate e = growth factor x kx k...
