Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For town A, increases of 20% per year are represented multiplication by (1.2) . Since you start with 30 homes, you will need this equation: \[30 \cdot (1.2)^y.\] For the town B, you have 45 homes that increase by 3 each year, you will need this equation \[45 + 3y.\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For part B, you should plug in y = 5 into each of the equations. This will tell you how many homes the towns have. For part C, set the two equations equal \[30 \cdot (1.2)^y = 45 + 3y\] and solve for y.
