# How do you identify equations as exponential growth, exponential decay, linear growth or linear decay #f(x) = 3 (1/2) ^2#?

##### 1 Answer

The function that you provided is just a constant: 0.75.

However, we can think about what each of those terms means:

Exponential Growth / Decay:

for some number

If the number you provided is part of an exponential decay, it may look like this

If the number you provided is part of an exponential growth, it may look like this

Linear Growth / Decay:

for some number

If the number you provided was part of a linear growth, it may look like this

If the number you provided was part of a linear decay, it may look like this
