1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Derivative of P(x) = 0.2 -0.125e^(0.005x) for X=1 P(x) is the population in Millions and X is the year where 0 = 2000 I have to explain the answer I am getting at the end. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution d/dx (0.2 -0.125e^(0.005x)) I find -0.000625*(1,00501)^x // did this with my calculator -0.000625*(1,00501)^1 = -0.000628 does that simply mean that the population is going down over time?
