rates and lower birthrates, then the whale populace will diminish as a result of predation. Expectation 1: If the beginning populace of the prey is higher than the predators, the subsequent populace of the seals will be higher than the number of inhabitants in the whales. Expectation 2: If the beginning populace of the predators is higher than the prey, the subsequent populace of the whales will be lower than the number of inhabitants in the seals. Expectation 3: If the prey development rate builds, the subsequent populace of the seals will be higher than the number of inhabitants in the whales. (Both beginning populaces set to 25.) Expectation 4: If the passing rate of the whales expands, the subsequent populace of the seals will be higher than the number of inhabitants in the whales.
