Question

The population of a country on January 1, 2000, is 16.8 million and on January 1, 2010, it has risen to 18 million. Write a function of the form P(t) = P0e rt to model the population P(t) (in millions) t years after January 1, 2000. Then use the model to predict the population of the country on January 1, 2016. round to the nearest hundred thousand.

A) P = 16.8e0.00690t; 86.5 million

B) P = 16.8e0.00690t; 18.8 million

C) P = 18e 0.00690t; 92.7 million

D) P = 18e0.00690t; 20.1 million

Answer #1

Requirement 1a.
A.
In 2000, the population of a country was approximately 5.63
million and by 2060 it is projected to grow to
11 million. Use the exponential growth model
A=A0 ekt
in which t is the number of years after 2000 and A0
is in millions, to find an exponential growth function that models
the data.
B.
By which year will the population be 7 million?
Requirement 1b.
The exponential models describe the population of
the indicated country, A,...

Suppose the population of a town was 40,000 on January 1, 2010
and was 50,000 on January 1, 2015. Let P(t) be the
population of the town in thousands of people t years
after January 1, 2010.
Build an exponential model (in the form P(t) = a
bt ) that relates P(t) and t. Round the value of b to 5
significant figures.
a = ?
b = ?

Suppose the population of a town was 40,000 on January 1, 2010
and was 50,000 on January 1, 2015.
Let P(t) be the population of the town in thousands of
people t years after January 1, 2010.
(a) Build an exponential model (in the form P(t) =
a*bt ) that relates P(t) and t. Round the value
of b to 5 significant figures.
(b) Write the exponential model in the form P(t) =
a*ekt. According to this model, what is...

The population of a region is growing exponentially. There were
35 million people in 1980 (when t=0) and 70 million people in
1990.
Find an exponential model for the population (in millions of
people) at any time t, in years after 1980. P(t)=
What population do you predict for the year 2000? Predicted
population in the year 2000 = million people.
What is the doubling time? Doubling time = years.

The population of a region is growing exponentially. There were
20 million people in 1980 (when t=0) and 70 million people in 1990.
Find an exponential model for the population (in millions of
people) at any time tt, in years after 1980.
P(t)=
What population do you predict for the year 2000?
Predicted population in the year 2000 = million people.
What is the doubling time?
Doubling time = years.

The population P (in thousands) of a certain city from 2000
through 2014 can be modeled by P = 160.3e ^kt, where t represents
the year, with t = 0 corresponding to 2000. In 2007, the population
of the city was about 164,075.
(a) Find the value of k. (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
K=___________
Is the population increasing or decreasing? Explain.
(b) Use the model to predict the populations of the city (in
thousands) in 2020 and...

5. James wants to invest $85000. He can invest the money at 7.3%
with interest compound monthly for 30yr or he can invest at 7.1%
with interest compounded continuously for 30yr. Which option
results in more total interest? Show your work
10. Solve the problem. The population of a country is modeled by
the function P(t) = 17.9e 0.01264t where P(t) is the population (in
millions) t years after January 1, 2000. Use the model to predict
the year during...

The U.S. census lists the population of the United States as 227
million in 1980, 249 million in 1990, and 281 million in 2000. Fit
a second-degree polynomial passing through these three points and
use it to predict the population in 2014 and in 2018.† (Round your
answers to the nearest million.)
STEP 1:
Let x represent the
year. Write a polynomial in t where t =
x – 1990.
p(t) =
STEP 2:
Substitute the appropriate
values of t...

On January 1, 2013, Ameen Company purchased a building for $53
million. Ameen uses straight-line depreciation for financial
statement reporting and MACRS for income tax reporting. At December
31, 2015, the book value of the building was $30 million and its
tax basis was $20 million. At December 31, 2016, the book value of
the building was $33 million and its tax basis was $18 million.
There were no other temporary differences and no permanent
differences. Pretax accounting income for...

On January 1, 2016, Adams-Meneke Corporation granted 60 million
incentive stock options to division managers, each permitting
holders to purchase one share of the company’s $1 par common shares
within the next six years, but not before December 31, 2018 (the
vesting date). The exercise price is the market price of the shares
on the date of grant, currently $44 per share. The fair value of
the options, estimated by an appropriate option pricing model, is
$5 per option. Required:...
