    Answer: The rate of decay is 93.3%.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since we have given that

    The exponential function is given by

    n(x)=7(0.067)^x

    As we know the general equation of exponential function that is given by

    n(x)=a(1-b)^x

    Here, a denotes the initial value

    1-b denotes the rate of decay.

    So, On comparing both the equations, we get that

    1-b=0.067\\\\b=1-0.067\\\\b=0.933=0.933\times 100=93.3\%

    Hence, the rate of decay is 93.3%.
