    its supposed to be 123(0.95)^x

    When you have the variable in the exponent it will be exponential growth if the number raised to the variable is greater than one. Ex. y = (1.3)^x It will be exponential decay if the number raised to the variable is between zero and one. Ex. y = (0.5)^2 So you need to look at the number being raised to the power to determine if it is growth or decay.

    so is the variable (0.95)^x

    The variable is x (variables are always letters). Look at the number raised to the x to determine if it is growth or decay.

    so it is decay?
