### How are exponential growth patterns similar to and different from linear growth patterns?

They are similar because the population increases over time in
both cases, and also because you are using a mathematical model for
a real-world process.
They are different because exponential growth can get
dramatically big and bigger after a fairly short time. Linear
growth keeps going up the same amount each time.
Exponential growth goes up by more each time, depending on what
the amount (population) is at that time. Linear growth can start
off bigger than exponential growth, but exponential growth will
always win out.

### Who invented exponentail growth and exponential decay?

Reverend Thomas Malthus developed the concept of Exponential
Growth (another name for this is Malthusian growth model.) However
the mathematical Exponent function was already know, but not
applied to population growth and growth constraints.
Exponential Decay is a natural extension of Exponential
Growth
