What is the growth factor of the exponential function represented by the table? 0.2 0.1 5 20

THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER πŸ‘‡

5

Step by step explanation:

The growth factor of the exponential function is the ratio of the two consecutive terms (y-values).

Growth factor b =  dfrac {y (x_2)} {y (x_1)}

As given, we have a table

xy

-2 0.004

-1 0.02

0 0.1

1 0.5

Then, for x_1 = -2 and x_2 = -1 the growth factor of the exponential function shown in the table is:

b =  dfrac {y (-1)} {y (-2)} =  dfrac {0.02} {0.004} = 5

Hence, the growth factor of the exponential function is what the table shows.
