Estimate the best function rule to model this data. Give your answer in the form of y=a(b^x)

(^x meaning exponent)

so

N(t+1) = n(t) * 4/6

in continuous form

dN/dt = -(2/6) N

of course 2/6 is 1/3

solution of form N = No e^kt

where No = 30

dN/dt = kNo e^kt

so k=-1/3

try

N = 30 e^-(t/3)

for example if t = 6

N = 30 e^-2

N = 4.06
