"The function P(t) = PoE^kt K > 0 is a model of many kinds of population growth. Po is the population at time 0, P is the population after time t and k is called the exponential growth rate. In 1998, the population of India was about 984 million and the exponential growth rate was 1.8% per year.

**t = 0 is 1998**

**P**_{0} = 984 million, so P will be in millions also.

**k = 0.018**
