for science i need to calculate and answer a fermi question. A fermi question is a scientific question which basically bizarre. Anyway, my question is "How many rabbits would it take to consume all the dandelions in central park if we were to cover it entirely in these plants?
so, I've gotten to the point where i found that to do this, they would need to consume 814,900 dandelions per minute with their rate being one dandelion in .11 (individually) in other words, a rabbit can consume one dandelion in .11 seconds.
I now need to find out how many rabbits would be needed to eat 814,900 per minute and i am lost!!!
Not that I agree with your assumptions, but
if time is 1 min, and rate is 1dand/.11min
solve for number of rabbits.
