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?
