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. ...Answered by Melanie Tyrer.
