Another town's population could be modeled by the function P(t)=27,400(1.66)^t/10, where P represents the population and t represents the time, in years, since 2005. Based on the model, by approximately what percent does the population of this town increase each year?

 

Thank you in advance!

P(t)=27,400(1.66)^t/10

2018 - 2005 = 13 years.

P(13) =27,400 x ((1.66)^1/13) / 10

((1.66)^1/13) / 10

(1.03976 - 1) / 10

0.03976 / 10 =0.003976

0.003976 x 100 =0.3976% =~0.4% - annual pecentage increase in the population of this town.
