Exponential Growth Our general form Q=C*ax C is initial amount and a is growth factor We only looked at a > 1—growth What if 0 < a < 1? (We NEVER look at a < 0, since neg1/2 gives a problem)

Exponential Decay Say we have a factor of .75 (decay factor) in some situation. Keep 75% of our money (so spend 25%) Y=100*(.75)x Week Keep 75% Avg Rate of Change 0 100.00 $ 1 75.00 $ -$25.00 2 56.25 $ -$18.75 3 42.19 $ -$14.06 4 31.64 $ -$10.55 5 23.73 $ -$7.91 6 17.80 $ -$5.93 7 13.35 $ -$4.45 8 10.01 $ -$3.34

Exponential Decay Say we lose 10% of something For example, scientists might say we lose 10% of facts each month if we don’t review them Our decay factor is 0.90 (what we have left) Month Lose 10% Avg Rate of Change 0 100 1 90 -10.0 2 81 -9.0 3 72.9 -8.1 4 65.61 -7.3 5 59.049 -6.6 6 53.1441 -5.9 7 47.82969 -5.3 8 43.046721 -4.8
