Question: The population size of Florida in thousands since 1830 has

The population size of Florida (in thousands) since 1830 has followed approximately the exponential regression  = 46(1.036)x. Here, x = year - 1830 (so, x = 0 for 1830 and x = 170 for the year 2000).
a. What has been the approximate rate of growth per year?
b. Find the predicted population size in
(i) 1830 and
(ii) 2000.
c. Find the predicted population size in 2100. Do you think that this same formula will continue to hold between 2000 and 2100? Why?
