what is happening is that every x is replaced by 6 |dw:1437348955679:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
then 15*(2)^6 is computed to get 960 that is why f(6) = 960
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
f(6) = 960 means "when it is 6 weeks, the population will be 960"
itsmichelle29
  • itsmichelle29
