Ah, but I'm still not exactly sure how you got that. How do the words match up to make the formula?
is k proportional to S?
Here's another question that I'm having trouble with...
Write a formula representing the following function.
The number of animal species, N, of a certain body length, L, is inversely proportional to the square of L. Use k as the proportionality constant.I said N(L) = k*-L^2... But this is wrong. I'm not exactly sure what everything in the question means.
Edit: Nevermind, I got it right. N(L) = k/L^2
