Step 1

Hello. Since you have posted multiple questions and not specified which question needs to be solved, we will solve the first question for you. If you want any other specific question to be solved, then please resubmit only that question or specify the question number.

** **

Consider the calculation for (1) sub-part (a).

The population for the year 2016 = 7652.

Annual rate of population growth = 1.6%

Now, consider the calculation for the population for the year 2017.

Step 2

Then, consider the calculation for the population for the year 2018.

Step 3

Then, consider the general form of the equation for the exponential growth.

**The value of t for year 2016 = 0.**

**Therefore, the value of t for year 2017 = 1.**

**Again, the value of t for year 2018 = 2.**

Compare the population for the year 2016 and 2017 wit...
