The constant amount of change in linear formulas is called the slope , with a positive slope indicating increase and a negative slope indicating decrease. The constant factor of change in exponential formulas is called the growth/decay factor . A factor greater than 1 represents growth, and a factor between 0 and 1 represents decay. Another common way to describe exponential formulas is that the percent change stays constant. The difference between the growth/decay factor and the number 1 represents the rate at which the quantity will grow/decay. For example, a growth factor of a 1.25 = represents a 25% increase in whatever unit of time is relevant, and a decay factor of a 0.75 = represents a...
