Answer:no solution Example 8**Model Exponential Growth**A. CELL PHONES This table shows the number of cell phones a new store sold in March and August of the same year. If the number of phones sold per month is increasing at an exponential rate, identify the continuous rate of growth. Then write the exponential equation to model this situation. Example 9**= e5k Divide each side by 88.**Model Exponential Growth Let N(t) represent the number of cell phones sold at the end of t months and assume continuous growth. Then the initial number N0 is 88 cell phones sold and the number of cell phones sold N after a time of 5 months, the number of months from March to August, is 177. Use this information to find the continuous growth rate k. N(t) = N0ektExponential Growth Formula 177 = 88e5kN(5) = 177, N0 = 88, and t = 5 Example 9**= ln e5k Take the natural logarithm of each side.**= 5k Inverse Property = k Divide each side by 5 Model Exponential Growth 0.1398 ≈ k Use a calculator. Answer:13.98%; N(t) = 88e0.1398t Example 9**= 0.1398t**= t = e0.1398t = ln e0.1398t Model Exponential Growth B. CELL PHONES Use your model to predict the number of months it will take for the store to sell 500 phones in one month. N(t) = 88e0.1398t N(t) = 88e0.1398t 500 = 88e0.1398t 12.4 ≈ t According to this model, the store will sell 500 phones in a month in about 12.4 months. Answer:12.4 months Example 9
