Section 3.5
16 (part d only)

Is A = pe^(rt) the correct formula? I know that r is given. I need to find p.

If it is the correct formula, what is the value of A and t?

I say this is not the correct formula.

yes, the formula is correct
r is given
the value of A and t : it ask you to determine time t necessary for A dollars to double (or for what t you will get 2A)

Can you please set up it for me as a formula?
We start Chapter 4 tomorrow. Chapter 4 and several more after are all trigonometry. Prepare yourself for lots of trig problems. Like I said many times, reply when time allows. Do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed.

2A = pe^(0.065t)
