Let f(t) = Q0at = Q0(1 + r)t.
f(7) = 75.94 and f(9) = 91.89
(a) Find the base, a. (Round your answer to two decimal place.)
a =
(b) Find the percentage growth rate, r. (Round your answer to the nearest percent.)
r = %
I honestly have no idea how to approach these problems. I wrote out the different equations:
75.94 = Q0a^7 and
91.89 = Q0a^9 but I don't know where to go from here for the first part.
For the second part of the question, I'm assuming that you plug in the values to the r equation so it would be:
75.94=Q0(1+r)^7 and
91.89=Q0(1+r)^9 but once again, I do not know where to go from here.
Should I use a system of equations?
