Hello, asweet1!

In 2006, the population of a country was 50 million and growing at the rate of 1.8% per year.

Assuming the percentage growth rate remains constant, express the population, (in millions),

as a function of , the number of years after 2006.

If the population increases at a rate of 1.8% per year,

This is identical to a compound interest problem.

The function is: .
