The population of a southern city follows the exponential law. If the population doubled in size over 13 months and the current population is 30,000 what will the population be in 5 years from now?

  1. let the equation be
    population = current (2)^(t/13) , where t is in months

    in 5 years, t = 60

    population = 30000(2)^(60/13) = appr 735,000

    (a rather silly question)

    check for reasonableness of answer:
    after 13 months -- 60000
    after 26 months --120,000
    after 39 months -- 240,000
    after 52 months -- 480,000
    after 65 months -- 960,000

    our answer is reasonable according to the data given, but certainly not realistic.

  3. in chronological order list the events that led up to the embargo act and describe each event

    I'm not asking for the answer, i mean, i am but I can't seem to find a good site to find out the infortmation, i just need a few events that made the Embargo act. That's all. 👌
