Math 110 Quiz 6 Oct. 26, 2006 SOLUTIONS 1) The population of the southern United States can be closely approximated (to the nearest 0.01 million) by the exponential growth model A = Pe rt , where r = 0 . 0139 when t is measured in years and A is measured in millions. The population in 1940 was 41.67 million. (a) Determine a model for the population as a function of the number of years since 1940. (b) Use the function from part (a) to approximate the population in 1960 and in 1980. Solutions: (a) Using the model A = Pe rt , we see that A ( t ) = 41 . 67 ( e 0 . 0139 t ) (b) 1960 correponds to t = 20 and 1980 corresponds to t = 40. So, A (20) = 41 . 67 e 0 . 0139(20) 55 . 02 A (40) = 41 . 67 e 0 . 0139(40) 72 . 66 2) The dinosaur embryo freezer at a popular wild game park has been sabotaged. The freezer, initially at -10 degrees celsius, begins to warm to the room temperature of 25 degrees celsius. The rate of change r is - 0 . 16 when t is measured in hours. The embryos will be unusable once their temperature becomes 17 degrees celsius.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
