The population of a species of fish is given by the equation below. Where t is time in years. What is the rate of change of the fish population after 5 years?

2. Relevant equations

P(t)= 1.2 x 10^8(1+0.02t)^ -2 where t is time in years

3. The attempt at a solution

Before i go further i just want to know if i am setting it up right from the beginning, here is how i started:

P'(t) = 1.2x10^8(1/sqrt of 1+0.02t)

= 1.2x10^8/sqrt of 1+0.02t
