The population, P, of a town is modelled by the equation P=6x^3 +7x +750, where x is the number of years since the year 1960.

a) What was the population of the town in the year 1960?

P=6x^3 +7x +750

=6(60)^3 + 7(60) + 750

=6(216000)+420+750

=1296000+420+750

=1,297,170

The pop. was 1,297,170?
