the population of a species of primates in the island throughout a decade. Later
on he drew a graph describing his record in a report. in the ﬁrst two year of his
trip, the population of the primates grew steadily so that the graph was increas—
ing in a linear fashion. However, since there was not enough food on the island,
the pace of the growth slowed down in the next three years. In this period, the graph is still increasing but concave down. Starting from the ﬁfth year, the pop«
ulation is saturated so that it becomes constant. (a) Redraw the biologists graph in the space provided below. (Hint: The exact height of the graph is not important as iong as it makes sense and the shape
is correct.) Population 012345678910 :10 Math 124 Exam 1 Fall 2008 2. [8+4:12 points) A waste collection. service charges $480 for 100 kg of waste per
