current population.

The population at time t years is modelled by the equation P = Aekt where A and k are

constants.

(a) With the aid of appropriate examples, explain how the growth of P over time

would be influenced by:

(i) The magnitude of A

(ii) The magnitude of k

(iii) The sign of k

(b) If the population of Metropia was 1,000,000 in 2005 (at t = 0) and 1,072,500

in 2007, determine the values of A and k and hence write an equation to model

Metropia’s population with respect to time.

(c) Predict the population of Metropia in the year 2012.

(d) Determine the expected length of time it would take for the population of Metropia

to double.
