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 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 = 3 to n = 10 and what does it represent? (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f(n) = 12(1.03)^n=16.13\\(1.03)^n=\frac{16.13}{12}=1.344\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you can find n \[(1.03)^n=1.344\\ \ln (1.03)^n= \ln 1.344\\n \ln 1.03 =\ln 1.344\]
