The number of cell phone subscribers in a certain country has steadily increased since 1985. A model that approximates the growth of cell phone subscribers is given by where S is in millions of people and x is the number of years since 1985. Use this model to approximate during which year the number of cell phone subscribers will exceed million for the first time. Hint: You might want to use a calculator for the arithmetic in this problem, but by judicious rounding of the coefficients, you could get an approximate answer that would give you the proper result.

If you do, all the results will be lost. Instead, make a note of any questions you got wrong and record a count of the number right that you knew for sure, the number you got right and thought you knew but weren't quite sure, the number you got wrong but would have gotten right if you hadn't made a careless error and the number you got wrong and really didn't know how to work.
