Sections 4.1 & 4.2 Exponential Growth and Exponential Decay

What You Will Learn:

1. How to graph exponential growth functions.

2. How to graph exponential decay functions.

Exponential Growth

This is demonstrated by the classic riddle in which a child is offered two choices for an increasing weekly

allowance: the first option begins at 1 cent and doubles each week, while the second option begins at \$1

and increases by \$1 each week.

• Although the second option, growing at a constant rate of \$1/week, pays more in the short run, the

first option eventually grows much larger:

Exponential Growth!

The equation for option 1 is: y = 2n where n is the number of weeks.

The equation for option 2 is y = 1 + n where n is the number of weeks

Exponential Growth Equation:

An exponential function involves the expression bx where the base “b” is a positive number other

than 1.

The variable is going to be in the “position” of the exponent.

86

Let’s Graph an Example

An asymptote is a line that a graph approaches as you move away from the origin.

xy ab is an exponential growth function when a is greater than 0 and b is greater than 1.

It is important to know the ordered pairs to get your starting points for your graph. They will always be

Question: Will the graph ever pass below y of 0?

We say that there is an asymptote at y = 0.

Question: Will the graph ever pass below y of 0?

We say that there is an asymptote at y = 0.

Graphing by Transformation:

The generic form of an exponential function is: bx hy ax k Where h is movement along the x-axis

and k is movement along the y-axis. The value of a will give a reflection and/or a vertical stretch or

compression. The value of b will give a horizontal reflection when b is negative.(New Transformation!)

An Exponential Decay Word Problem:

When a real=life quantity increases or decreases by a fixed percent each year (or other time period) the

amount of y of the quantity after t years can be modeled by the formula: (1 )ty a r

is called the growth factor is called the decay factor

(1 )r(1 )r

90

Example:

You buy a new car for \$24,000. The value y of the car decreases by 16% each year.

Initial amount is: ___________ Annual % increase or decrease__________

Growth or decay? Growth/decay factor: _________

a. Write an exponential model for the value of the car.______________ b. Use the model to estimate the value after 2 years._______________ c. When will the car have a value of \$12,000? ________________

In January 1993, there were about 1,313,000 Internet hosts. During the next five years, the number of

hosts increased by about 100% per year.

Initial amount is: ___________ Annual % increase or decrease__________

Growth or decay? Growth/decay factor: _________

a. Write an exponential model for the number of hosts.______________ b. Use the model to estimate the number of hosts in 1996._______________ c. When will the number of hosts reach 30 million?________________

Another example:

A motor scooter purchased for \$1000 depreciates at an annual rate of 15%.

a. Write an exponential function and graph the function. ____________ b. Use the function to predict when the value will fall below \$100. ____________

91

Example: Your parents want to deposit \$500 in the bank as an investment for you the day you are born!

They will give you the money when you turn 18. The banks they can use all pay a yearly interest rate of

6.5%, but compound the interest differently. Which bank should they choose to invest their money in?

Bank A: Interest Compounded Annually: Bank D: Interest Compounded Monthly:

Bank B: Interest Compounded Semi-Annually: Bank E: Interest Compounded Daily:

Bank C: Interest Compounded Quarterly:

Section 4.3 The Number e

The number e is known as Euler’s number. Leonard Euler (1700’s) discovered its importance. An irrational

number, symbolized by the letter e, appears as the base in many applied exponential functions. It models a

variety of situations in which a quantity grows or decays continuously: money, drugs in the body,

probabilities, population studies, atmospheric pressure, optics, and even spreading rumors!

The number e is defined as the value that approaches as n gets larger and larger.

Continuous Compound Interest

Example:

John invests \$1750 into a bank account that pays at a rate of 1.65% compounded continuously. Assuming

he does not add any more money to the account, how much money will be in his account in 15 years? How

much after 30 years?

Exponential Growth

The function 0( ) , where 0ktA t A e k can model many kinds of population growths.

Where: 0A = population at time 0, t = amount of time,

( )A t = population after time, k = exponential growth rate.

The growth rate unit must be the same as the time unit.

Exponential Decay

Decay, or decline, is represented by the function 0( ) , where 0ktA t A e k

Where: 0A = initial amount of the substance, t = amount of time,

( )A t = amount of the substance left after time, k = exponential decay rate.

The growth rate unit must be the same as the time unit.

The half-life is the amount of time it takes for half of an amount of substance to decay.

96

Exponential Model for the Half-Life of a substance:

Use the graph to determine the half-life and the exponential model for Iodine-131.

The inverse function of xy e is the natural log and is a log of base 𝒆. It can be written as 𝒍𝒐𝒈𝒆𝒙 or simply

as 𝒍𝒏𝒙.

[ANYTIME 𝑙𝑛 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑒 ARE NEXT TO EACH OTHER, THEY WILL CANCEL THEMSELVES OUT.]

Continuous Interest:

Example 1: An initial investment of \$100 is now valued at \$149.18. The interest rate is 8% compounded

continuously. How long has the money been invested?

Example 2: An initial investment of \$200 is now valued at \$315.24 after compounding continuously for 7

years. Find the interest rate.

Example 3: What interest rate do you need for a \$5000 investment to double in 10 years?

Example 4: Carbon-14 is used to determine the age of artifacts in carbon dating. It has a half-life of 5730

years. Write the exponential decay function for a 24 mg sample and then find the amount of carbon-14

remaining after 30 millennia. (1 millennium = 1000 years.)

Sections 4.4 -4.6 Logarithmic Functions

The inverse function to an exponential function is the logarithm. If you are trying to solve an exponential

and you get stuck, change it to a logarithm and vice versa.

𝑥 = 𝑙𝑜𝑔𝑏𝑦 is read as “The log, base b, of y. The y-part of a log is called the argument of the log. The

expression 𝑙𝑜𝑔𝑏 represents the exponent to which the base “b” must be raised in order to obtain y.

The domain of a logarithm can be found by setting the argument greater than zero and solving.

Find the domain:

a. 3( ) log (2 5)f x x b. 2( ) ln( 4)f x x

Changing a log to an exponential: just remember that THE BASE IS THE BASE IS THE BASE... Remove the log

operator and “switch” the x and y’s position. Changing an exponential to a log still remember that THE

BASE IS THE BASE IS THE BASE. Introduce the log operator and make the base of the exponential the base

of the log, then “switch” the x and y’s position.

A common log is a log of base 10. It can be written as 𝒍𝒐𝒈𝟏𝟎𝒙 or simply as 𝒍𝒐𝒈𝒙 because the base of a log

that has no base showing is “understood” to be base 10.

A natural log is a log of base 𝑒. It can be written as 𝒍𝒐𝒈𝒆𝒙 or simply as 𝒍𝒏𝒙.

Exponential word problem (revisited):

Recall the car depreciation problem from earlier in the unit: 24,000(1 .16)ty . We used the calculator

intersect to solve the problem of when the car would be worth \$12,000. Let’s solve it now without a

calculator using what we have learned about solving exponential equations.

Logistic Growth

A logistic growth model is a function of the form 𝑓(𝑥) =𝑐

1+𝑎𝑒−𝑟𝑥 where 𝑎, 𝑟, 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑐 are positive constants.

The number 𝑐 is called the carrying capacity. Logistic functions, like exponential functions grow quickly at the beginning, but because of restrictions that place limits on the size of the underlying population, eventually grow slowly and then level off.
