To find the starting value make t=0.
I am having dificulties solving the following problem:
Q=2e^(1-3t/4) give the starting value a, the growth rate r and the continuous growth rate k.
I've tried to solve this problem several ways and I kept getting stuck.
Please lend a hand if you can -- thanks.
How does your book distinguish between the "growth rate" and the "continuous growth rate"? Is the latter the value in the exponent, and the former the annualized value?
Please include your work so far, so we can "see" where you're having trouble. Thank you!
