    Exponential Models and Applications

    Can someone please help me with this problem: The population (in millions), p and q, of two neighbouring American states, P and Q, over a period of 50 years from 1950 are modelled by functions p = 1.2 x 2^0.08t and q = 1.7 x 2^0.04t. Find when the population of state P is: a) equal to the...

    Exponential Models and Applications

    Hi everyone, so I'm doing some worded questions but they are hard for me to understand. The half-life of plutonium-239 is 24,000 years. If 10 grams are present now, how long will it take until only 10% of the original sample remains (give your answer to the nearest year). Some worked examples...

    Inversion and Poincare Models

    I am trying to understand hypercycles and horocycles in the Poincare Disk Model and Upper-Half Plane Model. What I am wondering is if I have an understanding of the point of inversion that will take these hypercycles into the two models. Attached is a picture of what I am trying to understand if...
