##### Solution Preview

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 ...
