Linear growth 2010-01-27
From S.:
I. Linear Growth:
Suppose that the town has a fixed increase in population growth number of population increase each year.

Choose the amount of population growth each year = 200 (Hint: Choose a whole number for your growth rate, rather than a percent.)

a) Fill in the following chart:

Year (t) Population (P)
t = 0
(2010) 1000

t = 1
(2011) 1000+200=1200

t = 2
(2012) 1000+400=1400

t = 3
(2013) 1000+600=1600

b) Find a linear equation in the form P = mt + b (y = mx + b), which gives the population, P, t years from 2010.
