Math. easy?

On his 13th birthday he was 112cm tall and on his 14th birthday he was 121cm tall. Assume a geometric monthly growth rate. What is this rate?

I just need to know how to set it up. Please and thanks

  • Math. easy? -

    let the monthly rate be r

    then 112(1+r)^12 = 121
    (1+r)^12 = 1.080357..
    take 12th root

    1+r = 1.0064618
    r = .0064618 --- monthly rate

    BTW, I answered this question for somebody yesterday, perhaps it was you.
    In that solution I missed the "monthly" part and took it as an annual rate
