Section 7-1
Monomial – a number, a variable, or the product of
a number and variable with non-negative, integer
exponents
Constant – a monomial that is a real number
Base – term being multiplied in an exponential
expression
Exponent – the number of times the base is
multiplied in an exponential expression

Section 7-6: Exponential Growth and
Decay Patterns, Day 1
Equation for Exponential Growth: y = a(1+ r)t
a: initial amount t : time
y: final amount
r: rate of change expressed as a decimal, r > 0
Ex) The prize for a radio station contest begins with a \$100 gift card. Once a day, a
name is announced. The person has 15 minutes to call or the prize increases 2.5%
for the next day.
a) Write an equation representing the amount of the gift card after t days with
no winner
b) How much will the card be worth if no one claims it after 10 days?
Section 7-6: Exponential Growth and
Decay Patterns, Day 1
Compound Interest – interest earned or paid on both the initial investment
AND previously earned interest. It is an application of exponential growth.
Equation for Compound Interest
r nt
A = P(1+ )
n
A: current amount
P: principal/initial amount
r: annual interest rate expressed as a decimal
n: number of times interest is compounded per year
t: time in years
Section 7-6: Exponential Growth and
Decay Patterns, Day 1
Ex) Maria’s parents invested \$14,000 at 6% per
year compounded monthly. How much money
will there be in the account after 10 years?
Section 7-6: Exponential Growth and
Decay Patterns, Day 2
Equation for Exponential Decay
y = a(1- r)
t
a: initial amount y = final amount
t: time
r: rate of decay as a decimal 0 < r < 1
Ex) A fully inflated raft is losing 6.6% of its air every day. The raft originally
contained 4500 cubic inches of air.
a) Write an equation representing the loss of air
b) Estimate the amount of air in the raft after 7 days

Decay Patterns, Day 2
