Example of geometric sequence: population growth

A population that starts at 100 and doubles in growth every eight years:
The expression would give the population t years after the growth starts.

I would like the information about this geometric series example (regarding the 8 years with an initial value of 100).

Solution Summary

Population growth is examined using a geomtric sequence. The solution is detailed and well presented. The response received a rating of "5/5" from the student who originally posted the question.
