Unformatted text preview: we have 1600 = 700 e 50 k ln 16 7 = 50 k and so k = ln(16 / 7) 50 . 2. Use the model to determine the answer. Using the exact value of k throughout the remainder of the problem, the model becomes P ( t ) = 700 e ln(16 / 7) 50 t . We use the model and estimate the population in 2010 to be P (260) = 700 e ln(16 / 7) 50 (260) 51524 . 3049 which yields an severe overestimate of the actual population by about 44724 million people....
