A quantity, when experiencing exponential growth, increases exponentially as the growth is non linear and thus the values change drastically.

Work Step by Step

For example, in the case of y=$3^{x}$: When x=2 y=$3^{2}$ = 9 When x=3 y=$3^{3}$ = 27 When x=4 y=$3^{4}$= 81 This shows that the values are increasing drastically and experiencing exponential growth.
