What is an exponential function? Give examples. What laws of exponents does it obey? How does it differ from a simple power function like ƒ(x) = x^{n}^{?} What kind of real-world phenomena are modeled by exponential functions?

Step 1

To describe the exponential function, law of exponents, describe the difference between exponential function and simple power function, define the real-world phenomena.

Step 2

**Explanation:**

** **

**Exponential function:**

An exponential function is a mathematical function of the following form.

F(x) =a^{ x}, where x is a variable, and a is the constant called the base of the function.

The most commonly used base is the transcendental number (e) which is equal to approximately 2.71828.

Thus, the exponential function become f(x) = e^{x}

Step 3

**Law of exponents:**

Let a ≠0 and...
