After a devastating winter, when thousands of fish died, an environmental scientist has replenished the trout stock in a fishing pond. He started with 8,000 baby trout and has finished a count to find that, in 5 years, the population is estimated to be 24,000. Assuming an exponential growth pattern, what is the annual growth rate (rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent) of the new trout population?
Hint: A(t) = A0(1+r)^t, where A(t) is the final amount, A0 is the initial amount, r is the growth rate expressed as a decimal, and t is time.
A. 33.3%
B. 2.5%
C. 60.0%
D. 24.6%
