A scientist is studying the growth of a particular species of plant. He writes the following equation to show the height of the plant f(n), in cm, after n days: f(n) = 12(1.03)n Part A: When the scientist concluded his study, the height of the plant was approximately 16.13 cm. What is a reasonable domain to plot the growth function? (4 points) Part B: What does the y-intercept of the graph of the function f(n) represent? (2 points) Part C: What is the average rate of change of the function f(n) from n = 3 to n = 10, and what does it represent? (4 points

you are missing exponents on this equation f(n) = 12(1.03)n

What do you mean?
dan815
  • dan815
i think your equation is wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is correctly wrriten
dan815
  • dan815
are you absolutely sure, because, they do not ask growth rate for non exponential equations

f(n) = 12(1.03)^n

Ok so what is next?
dan815
  • dan815
now lets do part A what height did the plant end at
anonymous
  • anonymous
16.13cm
dan815
  • dan815
16.13 = 12(1.03)^n so we have find out what day this was
dan815
  • dan815
this will tell us approximately how high you want to make our domain on the n axis

  • dan815
|dw:1435869005066:dw|
dan815
  • dan815
so we are checking the last day he did his study upto
dan815
  • dan815
16.13 = 12(1.03)^n okay so what can we do to solve this equation
dan815
  • dan815
for n
dan815
  • dan815
\[16.13 = 12(1.03)^n \]

@samkellogg help plz
dan815
  • dan815
well so how about starting by dividing both sides by 12
samkellogg
  • samkellogg
which question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what sides are you talking about @dan815

  • samkellogg
hello do u need help on all of them or just one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
All but can we do part a now
samkellogg
  • samkellogg
yes I was just wondering
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so whats first?
samkellogg
  • samkellogg
okay sorry my computer is bing really stuped so hold on
