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) = 10(1.02)n
Part A: When the scientist concluded his study, the height of the plant was approximately 11.04 cm. What is a reasonable domain to plot the growth function? (4 points)
Part B: What does the yintercept 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 = 1 to n = 5, and what does it represent? (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2f(1) = 10.02 f(5) = 11.041 m(ave) = (11.041  10.02) / (5  1) = 0.255 cm/day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the final part the function is going to look like this f(n)=10(1.02)^1 f(n)=10(1.02)^5
