Scientific Notation A number expressed in the form cx10n, where 1≤c<10
Exponential Growth A quantity that is increasing by the same percent in each unit of time.
Growth Factor The expression 1 + r in the exponential growth model where r is the growth rate.
Initial Amount The variable C in the exponential growth or decay model.
Time Period The variable t in the exponential growth and decay models.
Percent of increase The expression 100r is the percent increase where r is the growth rate in the exponential growth model.
Growth Rate The variable r in the exponential growth model.
Exponential Decay A quantity that is descreasing by the same percent in each unit of time t where c is the initial amount.
Decay Factor The expression 1 - r in the exponential decay model where r is the decay rate.
Decay Rate The variable r in the exponential decay model.
