The following question consider the Gompertz equation, a modification for logistic growth, which is often used for modeling cancer growth, specifically the number of tumor cells. [T] The Gompertz equation has been used to model tumor growth in the human body. Starting from one tumor cell on day 1 and assuming α=0.1α=0.1 and a carrying capacity of 10 million cells, how long does it take to reach “detection” stage at 5 million cells?

For Questions \(1 - 2\), use the following. Scooters are often used in European and Asian cities because of their ability to negotiate crowded city streets. The number of scooters (in thousands) sold each year in India can be approximated by the function \(N = 61.86t^2 — 237.43t + 943.51\) where f is the number of years since 1990. 1. Find the vertical intercept. What is the practical meaning of the vertical intercept in this situation? 2. Use a numerical method to find the year when the number of scooters sold reaches 1 million. (Note that 1 million is 1,000 thousand, so \(N = 1000\)) Show three rows of the table you used to support your answer and write a clear answer to the problem.
