## Graphing exponential decay functions:

Exponential decay functions are functions in the form y=ab^x where the value of a is not zero, and the value of b is between zero and one.

And, much like exponential growth functions, the graphing of exponential decay functions is essentially the same as graphing any old function. You make a table, listing the x and y values of the function, then plot the points on the graph and make a pretty line connecting them. And just in case my incredibly complex instructions confused you, I have provided an example below of how to graph an exponential decay function.

Also, the variable b can sometimes be referred to as the decay rate of the function, so remember that, or else...
