USING EXPONENTIAL GROWTH MODELS When a real­life quantity increases by a fixed percent each year (or other time period), the amount y of  the quantity after t years can be modeled by this equation:

y=a(1+r/n)nt In this model,  • a is the intial amount,  • r is the percent increase expressed as a decimal, and  • n is the number of times the rate is compounded per year. EXAMPLES: • In 1980 wind turbines in Europe generated about 5 gigawatt­hours of energy.  Over the next 15 years,  the amount of energy increased by about 59% per year.  Write a model giving the amount E (in  gigawatt­hours) of energy t years after 1980.

• You buy a commemorative coin for \$110.  Each year t, the value V, of the coin increases by 4%.
