The growth in the population of a certain rodent at a dump site fits the exponential funciton A(t) = 336e^0.031t, where t is the number of years since 1963. Estimate the population in the year 2000.
CHOICES:
a. 529
b. 1058
c. 1091
d. 347
MY WORK:
2000 - 1963 = 37
So, let t = 37
A(37) = 336e^0.031(37)
A(37) = 336e^(1.147)
A(37) = 336^(3.148732529)
A(37) = 90775515.48
My answer is different from the choices given.
What did I do wrong?
