Pre-Cal 40S Slides April 23, 2008

  1. 1. The Trouble With Tribbles or ... more about exponential modeling tribbles by flickr user tr67
  2. 2. Example 1: A colony of bacteria doubles every 6 days. If there were 3000 bacteria to begin with how many bacteria will there be in 15 days?

  4. 4. Example 2: The mass (in grams) of radioactive material in a sample is given by: where t is measured in years. (a) Find the half-life of this radioactive substance. (b) Create a model using the half-life you found in (a). How much of a 10 gram sample of the material will remain after 40 years?
