i have a question i was just wondering if anyone would be able to help me get started. Suppose a population is growing in a profile which is shaped like the function y= f(x)= the squareroot of x, so demographers have decided to model this population growth by the equation p= a+b(squareroot of t) , and have determined that initially (at relative time ) the population was 2000 and 16 years later the population was 18000. Determine values for the parameters a and b .

Okay...

You're given the fact they want to model the population growth as\[f(t)=a+b \sqrt{t}\]

You're told that, at time 0, f(0)=2000, so\[f(0)=2000=a + b \sqrt{0}=a\]
