This exercise uses the population growth model.
The fox population in a certain region has a relative growth rate of 7% per year. It is estimated that the population in 2013 was 16,000.
(a) Find a function n(t) = n0ert
that models the population t years after 2013.
(b) Use the function from part (a) to estimate the fox population in the year 2018. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
(c) After how many years will the fox population reach 19,000? (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
(d) Sketch a graph of the fox population function for the years 2013–2021.
