The number of sales, S, in 000's of a phone is given by the formula:

S=Ae^kt

where t is time in weeks after the launch. In the week leading to the launch

3000 phones are ordered (ie when t = 0 then S = 3000)

In the fifth week (ie at t = 5) 5000 are sold.

(i) find A and k

(ii)predict, according to this model, what the phone sales will be after 7

weeks.

(iii) How long will it take to reach 20000 per week?

thankks
