Homework 2, Graded Problems. 1. The number of rabbits in a certain location is given by the function P ( t ) = P 0 e kt where t is measured in months. Assume that there are 100 rabbits at time zero and that there will be 200 rabbits after 40 months. (a) (10 pts.) How many rabbits after 1 month? (b) (15 pts.) Find the average rate of change of P on each of the following time intervals: i. [0 , 1] ii. [0
