# Geometric rate

### From Conservapedia

A **geometric rate** of growth occurs when a series increases in proportion to its current value, as in doubling per century in the case of Best New Conservative Words. Symbolically, this could be written as

where *t**i**m**e* is the amount of time since the *O**r**i**g**i**n**a**l**C**o**n**s**e**r**v**a**t**i**v**e**W**o**r**d**s* were counted (perhaps the year 1600 as described in the above article).
