The exponential model of population growth is a mathematical representation of how a population increases over time under ideal conditions. It assumes that the rate of population growth is proportional to the current population size. This means that as the population grows, the rate of growth also increases proportionally. The formula for the exponential model of population growth is:

[ \frac{{dN}}{{dt}} = rN ]

Where:

- ( \frac{{dN}}{{dt}} ) represents the rate of change of the population over time.
- ( r ) is the intrinsic growth rate of the population (the rate at which the population increases under ideal conditions).
- ( N ) is the population size at a given time.

This model implies that population growth is continuous and unlimited, which is rarely the case in real-world populations due to factors like limited resources, competition, and environmental constraints. As a result, the exponential model is often used as a simplified starting point for understanding population dynamics before incorporating more realistic factors into more complex models.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
