5 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay Moore’s law, a rule used in the computer industry, states that the number of transistors per integrated circuit (the processing power) doubles every year. Beginning in the early days of integrated circuits, the growth in capacity may be approximated by this table.

6 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay Growth that doubles every year can be modeled by using a function with a variable as an exponent. This function is known as an exponential function. The parent exponential function is f(x) = b x, where the base b is a constant and the exponent x is the independent variable.

7 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay The graph of the parent function f(x) = 2 x is shown. The domain is all real numbers and the range is {y|y > 0}.

8 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay Notice as the x-values decrease, the graph of the function gets closer and closer to the x-axis. The function never reaches the x-axis because the value of 2 x cannot be zero. In this case, the x-axis is an asymptote. An asymptote is a line that a graphed function approaches as the value of x gets very large or very small.

9 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay A function of the form f(x) = ab x, with a > 0 and b > 1, is an exponential growth function, which increases as x increases. When 0 < b < 1, the function is called an exponential decay function, which decreases as x increases.

10 Holt Algebra Exponential Functions, Growth, and Decay Negative exponents indicate a reciprocal. For example: Remember! In the function y = b x, y is a function of x because the value of y depends on the value of x. Remember!
