# Population growth

If my town's population grows each year at 1,000 what would the population growth be in t= 2010.2011,2012, 2013,& 2016yrs

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

c) using the equation in part b to approximate the population in the year 2030.

d) using th equation in part b to approximate how many years it will take the population to reach 7000.

Please show how?

Thanks
