Q3:

The population of a city was 1 3 of a million in 2010 and 5 million in 2016. The population can be described as an arithmetic sequence. Find the linear equation for the population 𝑝 in millions expressed in terms of the number of years 𝑛 given the growth is constant and where 𝑛 = 1 is 2010.

  • A 𝑝 = 1 9 ( 7 𝑛 βˆ’ 4 )
  • B 𝑝 = 1 2 1 ( 2 7 𝑛 βˆ’ 2 0 )
  • C 𝑝 = 1 9 ( 7 𝑛 + 1 0 )
  • D 𝑝 = 1 2 1 ( 2 7 𝑛 + 3 4 )

Q4:

The population of a city was 1 2 of a million in 2006 and 8 million in 2016. The population can be described as an arithmetic sequence. Find the linear equation for the population 𝑝 in millions expressed in terms of the number of years 𝑛 given the growth is constant and where 𝑛 = 1 is 2006.

  • A 𝑝 = 1 4 ( 3 𝑛 βˆ’ 1 )
  • B 𝑝 = 1 6 ( 8 𝑛 βˆ’ 5 )
  • C 𝑝 = 1 4 ( 3 𝑛 + 5 )
  • D 𝑝 = 1 6 ( 8 𝑛 + 1 1 )

Q5:

The population of a city was 5 7 of a million in 2010 and 5 million in 2016. The population growth can be described as an arithmetic sequence. Find the ratio of population growth given the growth is constant.

  • A 1 4
  • B4
  • C 1 5
  • D1
