**For this discussion, you will be using the population growth equation found in the Required Reading for this week. In particular, your task is as follows:**

**Use the population growth equation to determine the expected population for a state (not already chosen by another student) in the year 2050. Make sure to cite any outside sources used to determine the current growth rate.****Determine when the population will double (i.e., Doubling Time, T).****Discuss additional examples of real-world contexts that can be modeled using exponential or logarithmic equations.****In your responses to peers, compare your results and comment on their additional examples.**
