part (a)
A town has experiences a quadratic growth of the form
p=7t^2+p0 where t is the time in the years from 2010.
answer __________ and can you explain how to do this and how to check your answer?

Part (b)
Fill in the following

t=0 ( 2010) p0=__________?

t=1(2011) p0=____________?

t=2(2012)p0=____________?

t=3(2013)p0=____________?

T=6(2016)p0=____________?

Part(c)
use the equation from part (a) to approximate how many years it will take for the population to reach 12,000? Round to the nearest whole year when necessary.

part (d)
Graph this fuction by plotting the points found in your chart in part(a).Label your axis with the timeon the x-axis and population on the y-axis. Copy and paste your graph.

I regret to say that this problem does not make sense, as posed. I suspect something is missing. Perhaps you could check the write up and edit it. If it is correct as stands, then I am clueless.
