Firstly, yes x=5
Plots the points, does it look exp?
Then consider the model where population (P) is a function of time (t).
It should be clear that
Now use the other two points given to find A & k
Would it be right for me to assume X is positive for
and get to get X =5 as an answer.
and In Media-eval times there were 10,000 people living in a city that was struck by a plague. the number of people living after 6 days was 8,500 and after 12 days 7,225.
How would you determine the event is exponential and find the number of people living after 18 days.
if i set up my chart
0-10,000
6-8,500
12-7,225
18-X
I found a common ratio of .85 with help from some one else and after that I got kind of lost. (attempted an equation which didn't work)
