A population of 240 birds increases at a rate of 16% annually. Jemel writes an exponential function of the form f(x) =abx to represent the number of birds after x years. Which values should she use for a and b?

  1. You must have meant:

    f(x) = a b^x
    In this case, a = 240
    b = 1.16
    so f(x) = 240(1.16)^x
