For the following exercises, consider this scenario: For each year $t$, the population of a forest of trees is represented by the function $A(t)=115(1.025)^{t}$.In a neighboring forest, the population of the same type of tree is represented by the function $B(t)=82(1.029)^{t}$. (Round answers to the nearest whole number.)

Which forest’s population is growing at a faster rate?

$B(t)=82(1.029)^{t}$

So if we want to compare to exponential functions, we can see which has faster growth by looking at B base in our examples here, A has a base went Syria to five B has a base of 0.29 So although a has a lot to start in, Population B is going too fast growth over the long term. The real question is, how much time do we need for that? So really make a difference.
