Hi everyone

I'm having trouble with this problem, while preparing for my calculus test this Monday....could anyone help me figure out the solution....I know that I must use the formula P=P(original)e^kt where t is time, and k is the growth factor but I'm not sure how to work with the years:

Over a span of 20 years the population of Bramptom increased from 51003 to 149030. The population of Brampton in 2000 was 310792.

a)Assuming the population model applies to the entire relevant domain when was the population 51003?

Thanks a lot

Anton
