Question

A species of fish was added to a lake. The population size P (t) of this species can be modeled by the following exponential function, where t is the number of years from the time the species was added to the lake.P (t) =1000/(1+9e^0.42t) Find the initial population size of the species and the population size after 9 years. Round your answer to the nearest whole number as necessary. Initial population size is : Population size after 9 years is:

Answer #1

Given: The function can model the population size P(t) of the fishes

where t is the time

We have to find the initial population size

Initial population size is number of fishes when fishes are added in pond

and is given when t = 0 That is P(0)

and after 9 years, the population size will be given by function P(9)

**THUS,** **INITIAL** **POPULATION SIZE IS 100
FISHES**

**AND POPULATION SIZE AFTER 9 YEARS WILL BE 830
FISHES.**

Biologists stocked a lake with 300 fish and estimated the
carrying capacity (the maximal population for the fish of that
species in that lake) to be 7000. The number of fish doubled in the
first year.
(a) Assuming that the size of the fish population satisfies the
logistic equation
dP/dt =
kP(1−PK),
determine the constant k, and then solve the equation
to find an expression for the size of the population after
t years.
k =
P(t) =
(b) How...

the first year.
(a) Assuming that the size of the fish population satisfies the
logistic equation, find an expression for the size of the
population after t years.
P=_____
(b) How long will it take for the population to increase to

Biologists stock a lake with 500 fish and estimate the carrying

year. (a) Assuming that the size of the fish population satisfies
the logistics equation, find the size of the population after 3
years? (Round to nearest whole number) (b) How long will it take
the population to reach 4000 fish? (Round your answer to 4 places
after the decimal point).

Exercise 1.3.52: Let P(t) be the population of a certain species
of insect at time t, where t is measured in days. Suppose a
population of 30,000 insects grows to 150,000 in 3 days. a) Find
the growth constant for this population. b) Write the corresponding
initial value problem (DE and IC) and its solution. c) How long
will it take for the population to triple?

The initial size of the bacteria is 1000. After 3 hours the
bacterium count is 5000.
a. Find the function to model the bacteria population after t
hours.(Round your r value to four decimal places.
b. Find the population after 6.5 hours. Round your answer to the
nearest whole number.
c.When will the population reach 14,000? Round your answer to
one decimal place.

Exponential Model: P(t) = M(1 − e^−kt) where M is maximum
population.
Logistic Model: P (t) = M / 1+Be^−MKt where M is maximum
population.
Scientists study a fruit fly population in the lab. They
estimate that their container can hold a maximum of 500 flies.
Seven days after they start their experiment, they count 250
flies.
1. (a) Use the exponential model to find a function P(t) for the
number of flies t days after the start of the...

In a certain city the temperature (in °F) t hours after 9 AM was
modeled by the function T(t) = 40 + 11 sin πt 12 . Find the average
temperature Tave during the period from 9 AM to 9 PM. (Round your
answer to the nearest whole number.).

Revisiting Exponential Growth
