Q:
# Write an exponential function to model the situation. A population of 470 animals decreases at an annual rate of 12%.

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]\bf \qquad \textit{Amount for Exponential Decay}
\\\\
A=P(1 - r)^t\qquad
\begin{cases}
A=\textit{accumulated amount}\\
P=\textit{initial amount}\to &470\\
r=rate\to 12\%\to \frac{12}{100}\to &0.12\\
t=\textit{elapsed time}\\
\end{cases}
\\\\\\
A=470(1-0.12)^t\implies A=470(0.88)^t[/tex]
