Mike raises mink, which reproduce exponentially. He currently has 50 mink in his garage, where a month ago he had only 40.
How long does it take the number of mink to double?

ok so the rate is
<---- is this 4ln2 month or 4ln2 year?
How do you figure?
We are told that they reproduce exponentially so the equation is of the form
we know that at t=0 y=40
then in one month t=1 y=50
So the equation is
we want to know when y=80
Now all we need to do is solve this equation for t.
