# The number of employees in Jorge's business can be modeled by the equation E(t) = 4(1.2)^{t}, where t is the number of years since the business opened. Which of the following is the best interpretation of the number 4 in this context?

- The increase in the number of employees each year
- The number of years the business has been open
- The number of employees when the business opened
- The percent increase in the number of employees each year

## The correct answer is: The number of employees when the business opened
