Sociologists have found that information spreads among a population at an exponential rate. Suppose that the function \(y=525(1−e^{−0.038}t)\) models the number of people in a town of 525 people who have heard news within t hours of its distribution. How many people will have heard about the opening of a new grocery store within 24 hours of the announcement?

To determine how many people will have heard about the opening plug in t=24
\(\displaystyle{y}={525}{\left({1}-{e}^{{-{{0.038}}}}{\left({24}\right)}\right)}\)
