    If the city population increases by 25% every year, we can set up this equation:

    a(t) = a(1.25)^t

    Where a is the initial population and t is the number of years.

    Using a = 85000 and t = 5, we get:

    a(5) = 85000(1.25)^5

     a(5) = 85000(3.0517578125)

     a(5) = 259,399 rounded to the nearest whole person (answer B)
