The population of a colony of mosquitoes obeys the law of uninhibited growth. If there are 1000 mosquitoes initially and there are 1800 after 1 day, what is the size of the colony after three days? How long is it until there are 10000 mosquitoes?
where is the population after time , is the initial population, and is the rate of growth.
you are told
you are also told . you can use that to find . then you can fill in the unknowns in the formula above, except for and of course.
you can then answer the other questions.
the size of the population after 3 days is given by .
to find out how long it takes the population to become 10000, set and solve for
