The fox population in a certain region has a relative growth rate of 7% per year. It is estimated that the population in 2005 was 19,000.
(a) Find a function
n(t) = n0ert
that models the population t years after 2005.
n(t) =
(b) Use the function from part (a) to estimate the fox population in the year 2010. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

1 answer

n(t) = 19000 e^(.07t) , where t is the number of years since 2005
in 2010 , t = 5
n(5) = 19000 e(.07(5)) = 26962
use the method I showed you in your previous post do answer c) 👍
