Question

The table represents an exponential function.

A 2-column table has 4 rows. The first column is labeled x with entries 1, 2, 3, 4. The second column is labeled y with entries 0.25, 0.125, 0.0625, 0.03125.

What is the multiplicative rate of change of the function?

The multiplicative rate of change of the function is 0.5.

### What is a Multiplicative rate of change?

The multiplicative rate of change is defined as the rate of change formula that gives the relationship describing how one quantity changes in relation to the change in another quantity. The rate of change from the coordinates of y to the coordinates of x can be found as Δy/ Δx.

### What is the function?

The function is defined as a mathematical expression that defines a relationship between one variable and another variable.
Given the table represents an exponential function.
For instance, if 0.125 is divided by 0.25, the result will be 0.5.
Also, if 0.625 is divided by 0.125, the result will be 0.5.
Hence, the multiplicative rate of change of the function is 0.5.
