Since t is the time in years since 1994, the time t=0 corresponds to the year 1994. Therefore the rat population in 1994 was equal to .
Now 2006=1994+12 and so the rat population in 2006 will be equal to .
Okay my boyfriend and I worked on these two problems last night and couldn't figure it out.
Problem 1:
Solve for :
which I got: .8348214
and Dj said it was undefined.
which both were wrong.
Problem 2:
The rat population in a major metropolitan city is given by the formula where is measured in years since 1994 and is measured in millions.
What was the actual rat population in 1994 ? (not "in millions")What is the rat population going to be in the year 2006 ?
This problem went over both our heads. So please help.
well my homework is telling me thats wrong everytime type it in.
and the beginning formula is talking about since 1994 (thats what I understand from the problem). They want to know the population of 1994, not since. But I could be wrong, that's just what I took from the problem.
here is problem 2 again
