 Equations/555297: It is estimated that t years from now the population of a particular city will be.... P = t^2 - 24t + 96,000 How many years from now will the population be 95,865? Thanks in advance, I appreciate it! 1 solutions Answer 361729 by jim_thompson5910(33401)   on 2012-01-10 17:21:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! P = t^2 - 24t + 96000 95865 = t^2 - 24t + 96000 0 = t^2 - 24t + 96000 - 95865 0 = t^2 - 24t + 135 Now use the quadratic formula to solve for t: t = (-b+-sqrt(b^2-4ac))/(2a) t = (-(-24)+-sqrt((-24)^2-4(1)(135)))/(2(1)) t = (24+-sqrt(576-(540)))/(2) t = (24+-sqrt(36))/2 t = (24+sqrt(36))/2 or t = (24-sqrt(36))/2 t = (24+6)/2 or t = (24-6)/2 t = 30/2 or t = 18/2 t = 15 or t = 9 So this means that in 15 or 9 years the population will be 95,865 Note: the population will reach 95,865 in 9 years first, dip below 95865 and then climb back up to 95,865 when t = 15 If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, please consider visiting my website: http://www.freewebs.com/jimthompson5910/home.html and making a donation.
