7. Determine whether the equation represents continuous growth, continuous decay, or neither. Explain. \(y = 5879 ( e ) ^ { 0.85 t }\)

The equation represents continuous growth because the growth rate \( r \) is positive.

The equation represents continuous growth because the growth rate \( r \) is negative.

The equation represents continuous decay because the growth rate \( r \) is negative.

The equation represents continuous decay because the growth rate \( r \) is positive.

The equation represents neither continuous growth nor continuous decay because the equation is not an exponential function.
