Hi, I was curious how one would solve this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a town, there are 1850 trees along public roads. Each year, the town has to remove on average 25 trees of random age because of various reasons (natural death, fungus infection, insects, hit by cars, roots damaged by construction, etc.). To compensate for the loss, the town plants on average 25 new trees (age = 0) to keep the tree stock the same. Over time, what is the average age of the tree stock?
