Enter Population Growth Word Problem

We model our population growth equation, P(t) using the following variables:
P0 as our initial population, p as our percent growth, and t as the units of time.
P(t) = P0(1 + p)t

We are given the following values:
P0 = 27, p =, and t =

Using our given values, our population model is:
P(t) = 27(1 + )t
P(t) = 27(1)t

The problem asks for P()
P() = 27(1)
P() = 27(1)
P() = 27

Round to nearest integer:
Rounded to the nearest integer, our population is 27
