A "strange" thing to say is that, year 2000 is 0 years after year 2000.

So we substitute t = 0, and we get:

Population living in the city in 2000 = \(2e^{0.06(0)} = 2(1) =2\text{ millions}\)

Obviously, the growth is an exponential growth, as the modelling function suggests.

Year 2019 is 19 years after Year 2000.

The current population is \(2e^{0.06(19)} \approx 6.253537 \text{ millions}\)

Approximately 6,253,537 people live in this city.
