Never buy fish from a farm. Farmed fish is yuucky. Good fish comes from the ocean. lets start with 40 fish the first week 5 die so we have 35 which is 7/8 of original after first week 7/8 or 35 remain then in weeks two and three 3/5* 35 = 21 die so we are left with 35 -21 = 14...

quadratic is a parabola with one vertex exponential curves one way like y = e^x curves up sqrt slope becomes smaller and smaller

If the difference in x values is constant and the difference in y values is constant then the slope is constant and we have a straight line.

By the way, Newton 2 is force = rate of change of momentum F = m A is the simple version but will not work if mass is not constant (rocket or special relativity for example)

physics
Force = rate of change of momentum = m a if mass is constant (7.88 - 8)/.04 = -3 (-5.28+5) /.04 = -7 (0 - 0 ) = 0 so yes m a = .140 (do it in kg) * that a vector

a = change in v/ change in t = -5/1.4 = -3.57 m/s^2 so F = m a = 6(-3.57) = - 21.4 Newtons The friction force will be larger because proportional to the normal force (eight) F = -21.4 (9/6) = -32.1 Newtons friction force F = m a a = -32.1 / 9 = 3.57 m/s^2 so same time, 1.4 sec...

f(x+h) = 5/(x+h) f(x) = 5/x [f(x+h) - f(x)]/h = [5x -5(x+h)]/[hx(x+h)] = -5 /[x(x+h) } = -5/(x^2+hx) By the way, if you take the limit of that as h--->0 then you are a calculus student and you just found the derivative d/dx (5/x) = -5/x^2

I think you may mean 5^(n-1) try y = 103 * 5^(n-1) when n = 1, y = 103 * 5^0 = 103 when n = 2, y = 103*5^1 = 103*5 when n = 3, y = 103*5^2 = 103*5*5 etc

originally when n = 0, y = 5 after one month, n = 1 and we should have ten so y = 5 * 2^n after 42 months y = 5 * 2^42
