    Question Exponential function word problem

    Hi,

    I hope someone can help. My textbook has been extraordinarily incorrect with its solutions in the past, so I want to make sure with the following questions that my textbook is wrong in this case and not the other way around. As follows:

    Can someone please let me know what solution they get for 4c and 6b?

    Why don't you post your results instead of just "fishing" for confirmation? That way we may see what method(s) you are using to work the problems.

    I guess however I was pretty confident already with my solutions, I just needed further confirmation on them since they didn't align with the textbook's solution. Turns out, my solutions are correct
