5. ganeshie8

P : initial value r : rate of growth t : time A : final value

6. kenbaby

7. ganeshie8

whats the starting population ?

8. ganeshie8

read the problem and tell me if u can

9. kenbaby

94,083

10. ganeshie8

good :) so P = 94083

11. ganeshie8

r = 5.5% = 0.055 t = 32

12. ganeshie8

plug them in the formula

@ganeshie8 what does e stand for in the formula?

Did you see the formula he gave? He even told you what each of the values in the formula would hold in this problem. Can you show me what you think the formula is with these given values?

If you want, you can just draw it.
