## Answers ( )

The initial value is 12.5Decay rate is 37.5 %Solution:Given that equation is:We have to find the initial value and decay rate

The equation for decay is given as:Where,

y is the final amount

a is the initial value

b is the rate of decay

x is the number of years

On comparing given equation and above general equation,a = 12.5

Thus initial value is 12.5

Also,

Thus decay rate = 0.375 x 100 = 37.5 %

Thus decay rate is 37.5 %
