求解釋Express pin term of的意思

"Express A in the form of B" is usually used when you can do some algebra to A to make it in the form of B, such as "Express [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?3x%5E2+6x+3[/img]  in the form of [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?a%28x+b%29%5E2[/img]".

I think it is not a good use in this case because it is not through some algebraic operations you make P in the form [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?ae%5E%7Bbt%7D[/img]. In fact, you write [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?P%3Dae%5E%7Bbt%7D[/img] directly (expressing P as [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?ae%5E%7Bbt%7D[/img]) and then find a & b by plugging in inputs of t & P.

Get back to your question of which answer should be correct. As the question mentions that the population is increasing by 3% per year, so I guess that means the population after t years would be 3% more than the population of last year (after t-1 years, t >= 1), i.e. [img]https://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?%5Cfrac%20%7Bae%5E%7Bbt%7D%7D%7Bae%5E%7Bb%28t-1%29%7D%7D%20%3D%201.03[/img]
and we have
