Got the first one right, don't know exactly what it's asking for in the 2nd part(I missed the class that we went over these types of problems) thanks!

Hi Jordan, :)

Start with the standard form of the exponential function, \(y=Ae^{mx}\) and plug in values for \(x\) and \(y\). You get two equations,

\[y_0=Ae^{mx_0}\]

\[y_1=Ae^{mx^1}\]

By dividing the two equations you'll be able to find \(m\). I hope you can continue from here. :)

Kind Regards,
Sudharaka.
