Please get back with any questions you have

Looking at it now. It is a little hard to read though

sorry I tried to get the answer to you quickly. Take your time and I would be happy to answer any questions you have

Sure thing, thank you.

Looking at the steps

first I tried to find the population growth rat g given data in 1995 and 2010

On 'b' is that y(t)= 1500e^.0536t?

1995 to 2010 is 15 years

yes that is correct

How did you find the function?

this is the standard growth function formula - population growth is an exponential function

That's right. So in 'c' the input was 28, but should it be 15 since that is the amount of time that passed?

2020 is 25 years after 1995

Oh yeah, gosh I'm a bit clumsy at times

I am also

So 'd' is approx 33 years from 1995?

to reach a population of 9000 right 33.428 years

And to get that answer you used the standard growth formula but made it equal to 9000 and solved for 't'?

yes i used the formula in b and solved for t to and section d

Ok, just looking at the last part

Thank you for waiting, just want to make sure that it makes sense to me.

and that I fully understand the steps

what i did there was see if it makes sense from 2020 to 2028 or 8.428 years to see if this was consistant with the g found in b

Ok, I got it now, thank you.

I am satisfied with this answer

glad I can help you please positively rate my answer and a bonus would be greatly appreciated

nice to work with you

I'll be sure to leave a bonus. Thank you for your time and patience.
