For each training session, a personal trainer charges his clients $ 5 less than the previous training session.

not exponential; the charge decreases by a constant amount each visit, so the statement represents a linear function. .

For the following exercises, consider this scenario: For each year t , the population of a forest of trees is represented by the function A ( t ) = 115 ( 1.025 ) t . In a neighboring forest, the population of the same type of tree is represented by the function B ( t ) = 82 ( 1.029 ) t . (Round answers to the nearest whole number.)

Which forest’s population is growing at a faster rate?

Discuss the above results from the previous four exercises. Assuming the population growth models continue to represent the growth of the forests, which forest will have the greater number of trees in the long run? Why? What are some factors that might influence the long-term validity of the exponential growth model?

Answers will vary. Sample response: For a number of years, the population of forest A will increasingly exceed forest B, but because forest B actually grows at a faster rate, the population will eventually become larger than forest A and will remain that way as long as the population growth models hold. Some factors that might influence the long-term validity of the exponential growth model are drought, an epidemic that culls the population, and other environmental and biological factors.

what is the formula for calculating algebraic
Propessor Reply
I think the formula for calculating algebraic is the statement of the equality of two expression stimulate by a set of addition, multiplication, soustraction, division, raising to a power and extraction of Root. U believe by having those in the equation you will be in measure to calculate it
