# Gardening An evergreen nursery usually sells a certain shrub after 6 years of growth and shaping. The growth rate during those 6 years is approximated by dh/dt = 1.5t + 5, where t is the time (in years) and h is the height (in centimeters). The seedlings are 12 centimeters tall when planted (t = 0).(a) Find the height function.(b) How tall are the shrubs when they are sold?

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The height function of certain shrub whose growth rate is dhdt=1.5t+5, where t is the time (in years) h is the height (in centimeters) for 6 years.

Explanation

Given Information:

The shrub used to sell after 6 years of growth and shaping and the seedlings are 12centimeters tall when planted. The growth rate of the shrub is dhdt=1.5t+5.

Formula used:

The simple power rule of integration xndx=xn+1n+1+C.

Calculation:

Consider the growth rate of the shrub is dhdt=1.5t+5.

Integrate the provided growth rate, use the simple power rule of integration xndx=xn+1n+1+C.

dhdtdt=(1.5t+5)dth(t)=1.5tdt+5dt=1.5[t1+11+1]+5t+C=0

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The height of the shrubs when they are sold.
