$$\Huge y = 95(0.75)^t$$

is that^ the equation?

Calculate the function for t = 0. \(y = 95(0.75)^0 = 95 \times 1 = 95\) At t = 0, the initial numbers of subscribers is 95. Now let's calculate y for t = 1, at the end of 1 year. \(y = 95(0.75)^1 = 95 \times 0.75 = 71.25\) At t = 1, the end of the first year, the number of subscribers is 71.25. Now calculate the percent decrease from 95 to 71.25: \(percent~change = \dfrac{71.25 - 95}{95} \times 100 = -25\%\) A negative percent change is a decrease. The decrease is 25% per year.

This problem can be solved without graphs or any calculations. All you need to do is to compare the equation you were given with the growth/decay formula: \(F = P(1 + r)^t\) where F = future amount, P = present amount r = rate of increase or decrease t = time in years If r is a rate of increase, then r is positive. A negative r means a rate of decrease. Now let's compare this formula with your given equation. \(y = 95(0.75)^t\) must fit into \(F = P(1 + r)^t\), then you get \(y = 95[1 + (-0.25)]^t\) Notice that to have 1 + r in the parentheses, you need to write 0.75 as 1 + (-0.25). This clearly shows that the rate is 25% decrease annually.
