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

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!

  1. you have to evaluate e^(-5) can be done, by this method (1/e)(1/e)(1/e)(1/e)(1/e) That would be fun multiplying without a calculator.
