Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the growth rate is 7% = 0.07 so try \[y = 295(1.07)^{t}\] where t is years and y is the population

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So just simplify 295=(1.07)^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sort of. it's y = 295(1.07)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1generally speaking for these types of problems (growth rates) \[y = a(1 + r)^{t}\] is the formula you use. a is the initial population, and r is the growth rate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 336.7455. Am I correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just round it because the question asks for an approximate. unless its the zombie quail apocalypse where .7455 quails are running around!
