The population of the green deer in 1999 was 17000. In 2003 there were only 15000. Write an exponential equation to express the poulation decrease p(t) in terms of t years.
So the population decreased from 17000 to 15000 in 4 years. That
is from 1999 to 2003.
The general exponential equation for this decrease is
p(t) = Ae^(b*t)
where A is the initial deer population and t is the time in years
b is called the rate of decrease....Note that b has to ...
A word problem is solved using exponential functions.
