A bird species in danger of extinction has a population that is decreasing exponentially
\(A=A_0 e^{kt}\).
Five years ago the population was at 1400 and today only 1000 of the birds are alive. Once the population drops below 100, the situation will be irreversible. When will this happen?

The population of birds vary as \(A=A_0 e^{kt}\)
Given that population of brds fell from 1400 to 1000,we are asked how much time it will ake forthe population to fall below 100 when t=5
we can write the following equation
\(1400=1000e^{5k}\)
\(k=(1.4)/(5)\)
we need to find x,such that \((1400)/(100)=(e^x k)\)
\(14=(e^{xk})\)
in (14)=kx
\(x=(5 \in (14))/(\in(1.4)) \approx 39\) years
It will take 39 years for the population f birds to fall below 100

Celine, Devon, and another friend want to purchase some snacks that cost a total of $7.50. They will share the cost of the snacks. Which of these statements is true?
A. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is \(x+3=7.5\) The solution to the equation is 4.5, so each person will pay $4.50.
B. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is \(x+3=7.5\). The solution to the equation is 10.5, so each person will pay $10.50.
C. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is \(x\cdot3=7.5\). The solution to the equation is 2.5, so each person will pay $2.50.
D. B. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is \(x\cdot3=7.5\). The solution to the equation is 22.5, so each person will pay $22.50.
