How do I determine the rate of change when the population when there are 5000 fish in the lake?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, March 5, 2011 at 10:52pmYou take the derivative of p

expand p

p=15(t^3+240+30t+8t^2)

p'=15(3t^2+30+16t)

in the first equation,p=5000, so you have to solve for t. A little algebra is required. Then, for the real t, put that in the p' equation
