# What is significance of eulers number

rishi kesh
why is 'e' so important number. e^x is said to be natural language of growth. Why isn't 2^x a 100% growth.Can anyone explain me the difference between both of these and also bit more about number e which known as famous constant.please explain clearly. I will appreciate it.

I'm on my phone, so I won't go into detail. One thing special about e^x compared to other exponentials is the slope of the function is the value of the function. I would like to point you to this Mathologer video.
. "e to the pi i for dummies"

The video ia about 15 minutes, but he discusses where e comes from in the first few minutes.
