Assume that the relative rate of spread of a certain disease is constant. Suppose also that in the course of any given year the number of cases of the disease is reduced by 20%. (a) If there are 10,000 cases today, how many years will it take to reduce the number to 1000? The variables: C = cases, t = years The model: It will take about years to reduce the number of cases to 1000.

Do Now: #16 on p.348 Assume that the relative rate of spread of a certain disease is constant. Suppose also that in the course of any given year the number of cases of the disease is reduced by 20%. (b) How long will it take to eradicate the disease, that is, to reduce the number of cases to less than 1? It will take about years to completely eradicate the disease.

Applications with population Growth
Section 6.5b

Guided Practice A certain wild animal preserve can support no more than 250 lowland gorillas. Twenty-eight gorillas were known to be in the preserve in Assume that the rate of growth of the population is where t is time in years since 1970. (a) Find a formula for the gorilla population in terms of t.

(b) How long will it take for the gorilla population to reach the carrying capacity of the preserve? years after 1970

Guided Practice Time to grow from 5000 to 10,000
A population of honeybees grows at an annual rate equal to 1/4 of the number present when there are no more than 10,000 bees. If there are more than 10,000 bees but fewer than 50,000 bees, the growth rate is equal to 1/12 of the number present. If there are 5000 bees now, when will there be 25,000 bees? Time to grow from 5000 to 10,000
