Unformatted text preview: maximal population for the fish of that species in that lake) to be 10000. The number of fish tripled in the first year. (a) Assuming that the size of the fish population satisfies the logistic equation, find an expression for the size of the population after t years. P ( t ) = (10000/(24*exp(-1.05696*t)))+1 [10000/(1+24*(11/36)^t)] (b) How long will it take for the population to increase to 5000? 2.35 [2.68] years Home My Assignments WebAssign® 4.0 © 1997-2003 by North Carolina State University.
