This is an easy one.

Ok first you try finding the deer population in the first year. Do you know what you would do?
anonymous
  • anonymous
um no not sure

Well as you said, the rate of increase is 3%. All you would do for the first year, is to multiply the original amount (1253) by 3% or .03
anonymous
  • anonymous
Does that make sense on why you would do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay yeah that makes sense.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what did you get for your answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok good, now since the deer population is INCREASING do you have an idea on what you would do with that number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm something with the 6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'll get to the 6 later. Since we did the first year, we will add 37.59 to the ORIGINAL 1253 deer.
anonymous
  • anonymous
does that make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 37.59 + 1253?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct. remember its INCREASING, so you will add.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got 1290.59
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes! OK we just finished year 1, now since its increasing by 3% every year, you must do the same thing we just did for the next year. what do you think that is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
37.59 + 1290.59 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You have the right idea. You will take 1290.59 and take 3% of that number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
you take 3% of the previous year, and add that to the new population.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what level of schooling is it though? Is it possible they want you to use an exponential function? likeP= A^(r t) where P is population A is starting amount r is the rate t is the term?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or is Rstones method okay? because they will both work.
anonymous
  • anonymous
this is 8th year and I think they want me to write a function that represents the deer population.
anonymous
  • anonymous
that models the deer population actually.
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you know if they want you to use e like eulers number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah I think they want that exponential function in there because that's what the lesson is about
anonymous
  • anonymous
well that would've helped
anonymous
  • anonymous
ill let hugh explain it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its cool man, you can do it if you like, didn't mean to hijack your help
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry I mean it didn't specifically say to use that, but since that was what some of the lesson talked about... I didn't know if it needed to be used
anonymous
  • anonymous
these are questions at the end of the lessons
anonymous
  • anonymous
were they talking about continuous compounding ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I barely know what any of this means, I missed the class
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm nope I do think it just needs to be written as exponential function to get the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok 1 sec... lol.. dusting off my cobwebs...
anonymous
  • anonymous
my book has this function y=y(0)e^kt
anonymous
  • anonymous
if that helps at all
anonymous
  • anonymous
When critters and bacteria multiply they use a compounding exponential function.. and the euler number. the function would look like. yah awesome... thats it..
anonymous
  • anonymous
so your y(0) is your starting population
anonymous
  • anonymous
so y(0)= 1253 then
anonymous
  • anonymous
good, the k is the rate at which they grow.. as a decimal of 1..
anonymous
  • anonymous
so not 3 .. but ..?
anonymous
  • anonymous
k = 3% or 0.03
anonymous
  • anonymous
good one
anonymous
  • anonymous
and then t is your term :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
term? the 6? that's the only one left
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's it.. a term of 6 years.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
well wait
anonymous
  • anonymous
to be a function... then you would want a function of t... so...
anonymous
  • anonymous
f[t] = y(0) E^(k t) and you would plug in your value for y(0)
anonymous
  • anonymous
y(6) ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or 1253
anonymous
  • anonymous
and your constant for the rate of growth (k)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes starting population = y(0)
anonymous
  • anonymous
1253
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you should have something that looks like f(t) = 1253 e^(0.03 t)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 1253 e^(0.03*6)
anonymous
  • anonymous
you ahve the correct equation.. and if you need to make it a formula instead.. then you keep the t, and set a parameter in your function for it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i'm getting 1500
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have a choice that is 1456. That's the closest to that
anonymous
  • anonymous
looks good..
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh its multipole choice?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah there's a few to pick from 1044 9134 1777 1496
anonymous
  • anonymous
f[6] = 1253 E^(0.03 (6)) = 1500.11
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah so I guess it's all just approximate
anonymous
  • anonymous
wow that's sneaky hey ... yeah I'd go with the closest value..
anonymous
  • anonymous
In the question is subtly uses "about how many dear" so I guess it doesn't have to be exact.
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats like 1252 deer hey.. I guess one died.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
so thanks for helping me it's really appreciated!
anonymous
  • anonymous
no worries.. good luck
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you :) I understand this more thanks to you
