2

$60.50

$66.55

What will the price of admission be in year 6?

Describe how the ticket prices are growing.

The price is multiplied by 1.1 each year.

Year 4 = $66.55 · 1.1 = $73.205

Year 5 = $73.205 · 1.1 = $80.5255

Year 6 = $80.5255 · 1.1 = $88.57805 ≈ $88.58

The price will be $88.58 in year 6.

How did you find the price for each subsequent year in part (a)?
