In this paper, we give explicit exponential estimates |x(t)|≤Me−γ(t−t0), where t ≥ t0, M > 0, for solutions of a linear scalar delay differential equation x˙(t)+∑k=1mbk(t)x(hk(t))=f(t),t≥t0,x(t)=ϕ(t),t≤t0.We consider two different cases: when γ > 0 (corresponding to exponential stability) and the case of γ < 0 when the solution is, generally, growing. In the first case, together with the exponential estimate, we also obtain an exponential stability test, in the second case we get estimation for solution growth. Here both the coefficients and the delays are measurable, not necessarily continuous.
