3. exponential growth means that the rate of increase is proportional to the present amount. As more and more dandelions spread their seeds, the patch grows faster and faster, since each new flower contributes more new flowers to the population.

Same for decay. As the amount decaying shrinks, there is less and less to contribute to the disintegration. Radioactivity is a common instance, but maybe not quite so available in everyday life.

5. You could switch dandelions out for any other type of plant or flower that produces a lot.

9. And the Anonymouses above me isn't ME. If you just submit an answer without a username, you will automatically get Anonymous as your name. The two above me are mine, but whoever else was making fun of good ol' Steve...I'm WARNING YOU.

And I KNOW the person who just made fun of Steve. He disappeared. I don't know where.
