    Initial population

    The Male population of surf city beach has increased over time according to th equation y=A(1.03) T over 12 where T is the initial population and T=time in years. If there were 250,000 males in 2008 how many will their be in 2020?

    let 2008 be t = 0

    let y = population in thousands

    y = 250(1.03)^{\frac{t}{12}}

    2020 would be t = 12

    finish it.
