The number of people in a town of 10,000 who have heard a rumor started by a small group of people is given by the following function: N(t) = 10,000/(5 + 1245e^-.97t) 15. How many people have heard the rumor after 1 day? After 5 days? 16. How long before 1000 of the people in the town have heard the rumor?

that's too small. How did you type it into your calc?

N(1)=10000/5+1245e^-.97(1)

N(t) = 10000/(5+1245*e^(-0.97*t)) N(1) = 10000/(5+1245*e^(-0.97*1)) ... replace t with 1 so you should type in `10000/(5+1245*e^(-0.97*1))` into your calc

now repeat what you just did, but do it for t = 5 now

correct

for #16, you'll need to solve the equation \[\Large 1,000 = \frac{10,000}{5+1245e^{-0.97t}}\] for t
