**MathMate**, Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 5:40pmThe population (in thousands) at year t is given by

P(t) = (35 t^2 + 125t + 200)/(t^2 + 6 t + 40)

where t is the number of years from the current year, or current year means t=0.

So calculate P(0) by putting t=0 on the right hand side of the equation to get

P(0) = (35 (0)^2 + 125(0) + 200)/((0)^2 + 6 (0) + 40)

I get P(0) = 5 (means population=5000)
