A population of 250 frogs increases at an annual rate of 22%.

a. Write an exponential function to model the population of frogs.


b. Find the population of frogs after 5 years.

  • Math -

    b. 525 is the population of the frogs after 5 years

  • Math -

    Frog number = 250(1.22)^n , where n is the number of years

    after 5 years --- > 250(1.22)^5 = appr. 676 frogs

  • Math -

    a=250(.22)
