I have this done half way but not sure of how the remaining should be handled, pleaes help me out.
The equationP = P0 (1-e-0.05T) has been developed to simulate the spread of a virus and relates the number of persons infected (P) in a population P0 , after a period of T days after it has first been detected.
Use this model to determine:
(i) The number of persons in a town with a population of 10,000 that would be expected to be infected five days after the first detection of the virus
(ii) The time in terms of number of days before 50% of the population is infected
(iii) The time in days before 95% of the population is infected.
Here is my steps:
P = 10,000 (1 – e-0.0(5)(5))
P = 10,000 (1 – e-0.025)
P = 10,000 (1- 1/e0.025)
I was stocked at how to convert 1/e0.025.
Please bail me out.
