1. So for my computer science course I was given the homework on how to write a program on population growth. The serious dilemma is how to set up the equation. Here are the variables that are given to me: J = original number of Jackalopes (the imaginary animal that my teacher used) Y = generation (no specific unit of time) P = new population after each generation b = born percentage each generation (3% or 0.03) d = death percentage each generation (1% or 0.01) Example: J = 40 Jackalopes Y = 100 generations P = new population of 291 Jackalopes after 100 generations 2. The most relevant equation is population growth, which involves exponential functions. the equation looks like X = X0ert where: X0 is the original population r is the net rate of growth t is time The big problem is I can't use exponential functions, because I need to truncate the results and using exponential functions don't give the answer that my teacher is looking for. 3. Here is the attempted solution I came up with: P = J + (J(0.03-0.01))Y unfortunately my answer is way off. I recognize the pattern when I attempted to do the equation, but I don't know how to set it up. Please help me!
