Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the model for this problem is \(\large y=15(1.09)^t \) , where t is the time in years.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I see. So, when I plug 7 into the model, it gives me an approx. answer of: 27 lb. Is this correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I see. Okay. That's what I thought. So then, if it was t=6, then it would be 25 pounds of honey.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2seems 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just following the logic stepbystep\[\text{year1}\implies15\]\[\text{year2}\implies15(1.09)\]\[\text{year3}\implies15(1.09)^2\]so it should be\[\text{year7}\implies15(1.09)^6\]so I think we got it :)
