so we can identify an exponential function. Because the rate of change is proportional to occurrence amounts. A linear function has a constant rate of change. The same amount is gained or lost in a time in this example, with fi decreases by the same amounts every session. So it is a linear function, not an exponential hands. Eventually, procession is just going to be free.
