Modeling Centenarians The following table gives the projected population, in thousands, of Americans over 100 years of age. Create an exponential function that models the projected population y, in thousands, as a function of the number of years past 2010. Report the model with three significant digits. Use the reported model to find a function that gives the rate of change in the projected number of centenarians. What is the projected rate of change in the number of centenarians in 2040?
