Re: Exponential Word Problem

Hmmm, that's weird because I gave you all the information I'm given.

There is a part before that question that asks me to make an estimate of how many snow goons there would be after t amount of days, but I don't see how an estimate would help here.

Re: Exponential Word Problem

I edited the original problem so maybe it is solvable now.

need to estimate the amount of time it takes **each** snow goon to make 100 new snow goons.

edit the equation ...

Quote:

Estimate: On day t = 3 we estimate that there will be 100 snows goons.

solve an estimate for k, then use the result to estimate t in the first equation.

EDIT: Never mind I get it. Thanks, I'll keep posting if I have questions.

Re: Exponential Word Problem

Ok I did what you said and got 202 = (2)e^1.3(3.55). Not sure if that is right, but even if it is I need the function to give me N(t) right?

So would the answer be N(t) = (2)e^(1.3)t?
