Ever since then the population has grown by 4% every year. If conditions stay the same, what is the approximate expected population in the year 2000? ------------------------------------------------------------ Population in 200= [1200+0.04*1200]^5 = 1200*1.04^5 = 1200*1.2167 ---- = 1459.99 --- I guess you could round up: 1460 ======================================================= Cheers, Stan H. ===============
