the population P(t) of a new residential development t years after 2010 is P(t)=8000(1-e^-0.3). What is the population for 2015?

  • algebra -

    replace t with 5 and evaluate using your calculator

    (I got 6215)

    I was the population to increase in a new development.
    Are you sure your formula is correct?

    6215 is the right answer. What were the steps without a calculator? Thanks!

  • algebra -

    To evaluate e^(-.15) without a calculator would be beyond the scope of most of today's college students.

    5x-2y=4 m= b=

    -x+4y=12 m= b=
