The population of a colony of rabbits grows exponentially. The colony begins with 15 rabbits; 5 years later there are 330 rabbits. (a) Express the population of the colony of rabbits, P, as a function of time, t, in years. (b) Use the graph to estimate how long it takes for the population of rabbits to reach 1000 rabbits.
