Show full calculations

Number of gadgets sold with exponential growth =

10 000 in 2000

82700 in 2002

500 000 in what year

Form: y = ab^x

Solve for a and b.

---------------------------

82700 = ab^2

10000 = ab^0

a = 10000

---

b^2 = 82700/10000

b^2 = 8.27

b = 2.8757

-----

Equation:

y = 10,000*2.8757^x

---

Solve 10,000*2.8757^x > 500,000

2.8757^x > 50

x*log(2.8757) > log50

x > 3.7035 years

------

Year 2000 + 3.7 = year 2004
