The exponential function

N = 3.93 × 1.34d

gives the approximate U.S. population, in millions, d decades after 1790. (The formula is valid only up to 1860.)

(a) What is the yearly growth factor? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

Find a formula that gives the population y years after 1790.

N =

(b) What is the century growth factor? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

Find a formula that gives the U.S. population c centuries after 1790. (Assume that the original formula is valid over several centuries.)

N =
