Tip* Population growth formula:

P = P(subzero)multiplied by e^(k)(t)

**Damon**, Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 6:47pmp = po e^(kt)

10,000 = 10,000 e^0 if t = 0 at 1982

1995 - 1982 = 13

35,000 = 10,000 e^(k*13)

ln(3.5) = 13 k

k = 1.253/13 = .09637

300,000 = 10,000 e^(.09637 t)

ln 30 = .09637t

t = 35.3

1982 + 35.3 = 2017 almost there :)
