A biologist is comparing the growth of a population of flies per week to the number of flies an iguana will consume per week. He has devised an equation to solve for which day (x) the iguana would be able to eat the entire population. The equation is 3x = 2x + 1. However, he has observed that the iguana cannot eat more than eight flies in one week.
Explain to the biologist how he can solve this on a graph using a system of equations. Identify any possible constraints to the situation.

Dude is it \[3^{x} \] or 3x ?

- Butterfield1215

sorry bout that it is 3^x

alright...

thanks annas

ok the biologist can solve the eqs by making graphs of these two:
y = 2x + 1
y = 3x
intersection of the points will give you the solution set.

- anonymous

constraints are both x and y variables must be positive cause neither flies nor days can be negative

OK i understand that now thanks annas

np welcome
