Do you understand "the area is growing with a factor of 1.5 each year" Start with 5,000 ft^2

after 1 year, area = 1500 + 1.5(1500)=3750 after 2 years, area = 3750 + 1.5(3750) = 9735 after 3 years, area = 9735 +1.5(9735) = 23437.5 after 4 years, area = 23437.5 + 1.5(23437.5) = 58593.75 after 5 years, area = 58593.75 + 1.5(58593.75) = 146484.375

It's basically a function table. You have the function y = 5000(1.5)^x. The insert the values of x 1-5 because it asks for the next 5 years.

@blackrose.ritoch, year1: 5,000 * 1.5 = 7,500 ft^2 Year2: 7,500 * 1.5 = 11,250
