We model our population growth equation, P(t) using the following variables: P_{0} as our initial population, p as our percent growth, and t as the units of time. P(t) = P_{0}(1 + p)^{t}

We are given the following values: P_{0} = 45, p =, and t =

Using our given values, our population model is: P(t) = 45(1 + )^{t} P(t) = 45(1)^{t}

The problem asks for P() P() = 45(1)^{} P() = 45(1) P() = 45

Round to nearest integer: Rounded to the nearest integer, our population is 45
