In summary, population growth refers to the increase in the number of individuals in a population over a certain period of time. It is important to study population growth in order to understand and predict changes in population size and develop strategies for managing resources. Population growth is calculated by subtracting the initial population size from the final population size, dividing by the initial population size, and multiplying by 100. Factors such as birth rates, death rates, immigration, and emigration can all affect population growth. Population growth can have a significant impact on the environment, leading to increased demand for resources and potential environmental degradation. Sustainable management of population growth is crucial for maintaining a healthy environment for future generations.

ok I think that would leave (A) since the linear graph would be P(t)=200t which is a straight line.

$P(t) = 200t + C$

## 1. What is the significance of the number 2.7.263 in the AP Calculus Exam?

The number 2.7.263 refers to the specific question on the AP Calculus Exam that deals with population growth. It is used to identify the question and differentiate it from other questions on the exam.

## 2. How is population growth related to calculus?

Calculus is used to model and analyze population growth by using differential equations to describe how the population changes over time. It helps us understand the patterns and trends of population growth and make predictions for the future.

## 3. What is the formula for calculating population growth?

The formula for calculating population growth is dP/dt = rP, where dP/dt represents the rate of change of population over time, r represents the growth rate, and P represents the population size. This formula is derived from the basic principles of calculus.

## 4. How does population growth impact the environment?

Population growth can have a significant impact on the environment, as it can lead to depletion of resources, loss of biodiversity, and environmental degradation. It is important to understand and manage population growth in order to protect the environment for future generations.

## 5. What are some real-life applications of population growth and calculus?

Population growth and calculus have many real-life applications, such as predicting the spread of diseases, analyzing economic trends, and managing natural resources. They are also used in fields such as sociology, ecology, and demography to study and understand human populations.
