Part 1: How are exponential growth and decay present in the real world? Give at least 2 examples for exponential growth and 2 examples of exponential decay.

Part 2: View and comment on the work of at least 2 other students. Try to choose students whose work is based on different real-world examples than the ones you chose.

I don't understand how to do this.
Thank You.

    For the first part, it is just asking for a life cycle in math terms. A plant will grow a lot more in its first week than in its second third and so on. It's decay is 2x faster than its growth.

    For the second part, just ask your fellow students.
