    I think I'm right actually but I also need help with decay factor - would it be like 1-the percentage as a decimal?

    What are the growth and decay factors defined as?

    growth increases decay(decrease) factor is the first number in the exponential I think

    so for example if I have a percent of like 21 the decay factor is 1-0.21 which is 0.79 is that right?

    Do you have a defining equation?

    No these are just scenarios and I have to find what the growth factor is and decay factor.

    Calculate those numbers and draw a graph.

    I don't need to do all that I don't think. I just needed to find the decay factor and growth factor and I am sure they are 0.065 and 0.79.
