Exam 3 Exam 3 should be Wednesday, April 20 (still 3 weeks away) It will cover 4.7, 5.1-5.6, 6.1-6.5 We still have lots more to cover on our use of exponential functions.
Review of some of our Topics from Before Spring Break Y=4*1.3x A-Growth B-Decay Growth Factor? A. 4 B. 30% C. 1.3 D. 130% Growth Rate? A. 4 B. 30% C. 1.3 D. 130% Remember: growth factor = 1 + growth rate OR Growth rate = growth factor – 1 (how far from 1 is the factor-written as a percent)

Y=2*0.8x A-Growth B-Decay Decay Factor? A. 20% B. 80% C. 0.80 D. 2 Decay Rate? A. 20% B. 80% C. 0.80 D. 2 Remember: decay factor = 1 - decay rate OR Decay rate = 1- decay factor (how far from 1 is the factor-written as a percent)
If we are told we have a decay rate of 15% and an intial value of 20, our equation would be: A. 20*0.15t B. 20*1.15t C. 20*0.85t D. 15*0.20t

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
