The population of the United States from 1790 to 1860 is given by the following formula, where t is years since 1790 and N is the population, in millions.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
(b) Express the population in 1855 using functional notation.N((No Response) 65)
Should be written in the form n(t) 65)
where t is the variable . In our case time is the variable and so we say
n(t)=3.93 x 1.03t where t=65
(c) Calculate the value of the population in 1855. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)(No Response)
n(t)=3.93 x 1.03 ^65
You just evaluate
Im still confused on how they got the answer 65 on the question express the population in 1855 using functional notation.
65 is the value of t. its not the population. They subtracted the years 1855-1790
The 65 now becomes the value of t where the expression can be written
N = 3.93 x 1.03^65
