Step 1

To determine the time when the population of sasquatch reaches 60.

Step 2

Given:

The population of sasquatch t years after 2010 is modeled by the equation:

Step 3

Substitute 60 for P(t) and solve for ... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose120 60 1+3.167e-0.05 120 1+3.167e0.05 60 =2-1 3.167e 0.05 1 3.167 1 -0.05t In Taking log on both the sides] 3.167 1 In 3.167 t = -0.05 t 23.06 years fullscreen
