Question

This exercise deals with data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census
on populations of major cities.† These data allow us to find how
fast the population is growing and when it will reach certain
levels. Such calculations are very important, because they indicate
the future needs of the population for goods and services and how
well the area can support the population.

The third largest city in the United States is Chicago. Its
population in 2011 was 2,705 (in thousands); in 2012, it was
2,715.

(a) Develop the model that represents the population of Chicago.
(Write your model in terms of *t*, where *t* is the
number of years after 2011. Let *p* represent the population
in thousands. Round the coefficient of *t* to seven decimal
places.)

* p*(

(b) Predict the population in 2019. (Round your answer up to the
nearest whole number.)

(c) Predict the population in 2023. (Round your answer up to the
nearest whole number.)

thousand people

(d) Predict when the population will be double its 2011 population.
(Round your answer to one decimal place.)

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...

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 11% of children in the
United States lived with at least one grandparent in 2009 (USA
TODAY, June 30, 2011). Suppose that in a recent sample of 1570
children, 239 were found to be living with at least one
grandparent. At a 10% significance level, can you conclude that the
proportion of all children in the United States who currently live
with at least one grandparent is higher than 11%? Use both the
p-value...

The populations P (in thousands) of a particular county from
1971 through 2014 can be modeled by P = 73.5e0.0326t where t
represents the year, with t = 1 corresponding to 1971.
(a) Use the model to complete the table. (Round your answers to
the nearest whole number.)

(b) According to the model, when will the population of the
county reach 380,000?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 11% of children in the
United States lived with at least one grandparent in 2009 (USA

children, 234 were found to be living with at least one
grandparent. At a 10% significance level, can you conclude that the

with at least one grandparent is higher than 11%? Use both the

The U.S. Census Bureau conducts annual surveys to obtain
information on the percentage of the voting-age population that is
registered to vote. Suppose that 649 employed persons and 666
unemployed persons are independently and randomly selected, and
that 364 of the employed persons and 299 of the unemployed persons
have registered to vote. Can we conclude that the percentage of
employed workers ( p1 ), who have registered to vote, exceeds the
percentage of unemployed workers ( p2 ), who...

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) =

Substitute the appropriate
values of t...

The U.S. Census Bureau conducts annual surveys to obtain

registered to vote. Suppose that 418 employed persons and 413
unemployed persons are independently and randomly selected, and
that 251 of the employed persons and 183 of the unemployed persons
have registered to vote. Can we conclude that the percentage of
employed workers ( p1 ), who have registered to vote, exceeds the
percentage of unemployed workers ( p2), who have...
