The conversation continues about how big the state will be in 14 years. The pundit also says that the expected growth will quadruple the state population in 14 years.

(2) Assume that the average annual growth rate can be applied over the next 14 years after 2006.
(a) Calculate the estimated population of Arizona in 2020 using discrete exponential growth.
Now calculate the ratio of growth (new to old):
(b) Calculate the estimated population of Arizona in 2020 using continuous exponential growth.
Now calculate the ratio of growth (new/old):
(c) Calculate the estimated population of Arizona in 2020 using linear growth.
Now calculate the ratio of growth (new/old):
