Year 1 (35% of 1400= 490) 1400 490= 910 Year 2 (35% of 910 = 318.5) 910 318.5= 591.5 Year 3 (35% of 591.5= 207 * rounded to the nearest hundredth*) 591.5 207= 384.5 Year 4 (35% of 384.5 = 134.6 *rounded to the nearest hundredth* ) 384.5  134.6= 249.9.

in this case a=1,b=k,c=k+1 so for \[\Delta = k ^{2}4\left( k +1 \right) =k ^{2}4k 4\] now use quadratic formula on this to find k.\[\div 2k=\left( 4\pm \sqrt{164\times 4} \right)\div2=\left( 4\pm \sqrt{32} \right)\div2=\left( 4\pm4\sqrt{2} \right)\]\[\div2=2\pm2\]
