Can someone please check to see if this is right? A city has a population of 210,000 people. Suppose that each year the population grows by 3.25%. What will the population be after 11 years?Use the calculator provided and round your answer to the nearest whole number. f=210000(1+0.0325)^11 = 298545.10743494 so would the answer be 298500?

    You did the the exponential growth factor right, but you didn't round to the nearest whole number.

    The rounding of the number only applies to after the decimal point.
