math - another ? - exponentials

posted by .

The two formulas f(t) = Pa^t and
f(t) = Pe^rt provide two models for the same exponential growth or decay function.

How are the exact values of a and r related? (Hint: Find a formula for a as a function of r)

  • math - another ? - exponentials -

    Pa^t = Pe^rt
    Pa^t = P(e^r)^t

    so, a = e^r
