Example Estimating the Cost of a Four-Year Education
Penny estimated the cost of attendance for the first year at a college she is thinking about attending. The cost of attendance at Wrigley University typically increases by 2.5% each year. Estimate Penny's cost of a 4-year education at that school. Round the cost of attendance for each year to the nearest dollar.
Penny's estimated cost of a 4-year education at Wrigley University is $209,594.
