In a community of 8,000 people, the rate at which a rumor spreads is jointly proportional to the number of people who have heard the rumor and to the number of people who have not heard it. Given that the rumor is spreading at the rate of 20 people per hour when 200 people have heard it , express the rate at which the rumor is spreading in terms of the number of people who have heard it. Solution: Let r people per hour be the rate at which the rumor spreads in a community of 8,000 people when x people have heard the rumor. Then, r = kx (8000 - x ) 20 = k (200)(8000 - 200)
