The red squirrel population, p, in a neighborhood park can be modelled by the function p(t)= srqt(210t+44t^2), where t is time in year.

a) Determine the rate of growth of the squirrel population at t= 2years

Ans: find the 1st derivative and substitute 2 in the function.

b) When will the population reach 60 sqirrels

Ans: set p(t) = 60

c) What is the instantaneous rate of change of the population at the time in part b)?

Ans: the time obtained in b, substitute that into the 1st derivative.

d) When is the instantaneous rate of the squirrel population approximately 7squirrels per year?

Ans: set the first derivative p'(t) = 7
