A person studying the growth of an animal population has determined T = 25logN − 50for the time T, in years, at which the population has reached the size N.
a. At what time does the population reach a size of 200? Explain how to find this.
b. What was the initial population size? How did you find it?
a. Size N = 200.
So now substitute this value in the equation.
T = 25log(200) - ...
Given an equation, the population size is determined at a given time in a series of clear calculations.
