A city is growing at the rate of 0.5% annually. If there were 3,896,000 residents in the city in 1995, find how many (to the nearest ten-thousand) are living in that city in 2000. Use the equation f(t)=3,896,000(2.7)^0.005t
yes (but technically you should have f(5) on the left)
but yes, the value of that function is the answer. remember 0.005(5) is a power. be careful how you input this into your calculator
if you don't have a calculator with a secondary display, like a TI-89 or whatever, you have to input 2.7^[0.005(5)] first, and then multiply that answer by 3896000
