If a function is growing or shrinking exponentially, it can be modeled using a differential equation. The equation itself is dy/dx=ky, which leads to the solution of y=ce^(kx). In the differential equation model, k is a constant that determines if the function is growing or shrinking. If k is greater than 1, the function is growing. If it is less than 1, the function is shrinking.
