Bill keeps a colony of honeybees on his property. He has created an expression to represent the number of honeybees that are in the colony t years after he decided to create the colony. The expression Bill created is 16t4 + 160t2 – 144.
After deciding to create the colony, it took a fair amount of time to prepare before actually getting bees in his colony. After some time, the population in the colony started to decrease; eventually Bill lost his colony.
a. How could you use Bill’s expression to find out when Bill first got his honeybees and when he lost his colony?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the caret ^ (above the 6) to denote an exponent !! Bill's expression: [ 16t^4 + 160t^2  144] set Bill's expression for the colony equal to ZERO to find the time (t) when there are zero bees...  16t^4 + 160t^2  144 = 0  16(t^4  10t^2 + 9) = 0 solve the equation (in quadratic form)... (t^2  9)(t^2  1) = 0 t = ± 3 [ 3 is extraneous] or t = ± 1 [ 1 is extraneous] Bill got his colony after 1 year...Bill lost his colony after 3 years
