Year 2011 amount = 570

Year 2012 amount = 855

Year 2013 amount = 1,195

I know that year 2008 is made up of Q3 = 25 and Q4 = 35.

I am trying to break the yearly amounts down to quarterly amounts. Each quarter amount must be greater than the previous quarter. Assume exponential growth from 1 year to the next.

What would be the formula to calculate Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 for 2009 so that all for quarters equal 200?
