    BTW - the answer is NOT (F) - 22 lb. I tried that, and it was incorrect.

    do you have the equation that models this problem?

    the model for this problem is \(\large y=15(1.09)^t \) , where t is the time in years.

    Oh, I see. So, when I plug 7 into the model, it gives me an approx. answer of: 27 lb. Is this correct?

    If dpalnac is correct about the formula, which I think he is, then the "first year" would be represented mathematically as year 0 (plug in t=0 to get y=15) that means year 7 would be represented as t=6 in your function...

    Oh, I see. Okay. That's what I thought. So then, if it was t=6, then it would be 25 pounds of honey.

    seems that way, but the wording leaves me unable to say that we have interpreted the problem correctly for certain. I get 25 as well though...

    just following the logic step-by-step\[\text{year1}\implies15\]\[\text{year2}\implies15(1.09)\]\[\text{year3}\implies15(1.09)^2\]so it should be\[\text{year7}\implies15(1.09)^6\]so I think we got it :)
