We know that for any ${a}^{x}=b,\text{}{\mathrm{log}}_{a}b=x$

Here,$a=2$ and $b=0.5$ So we take

${\mathrm{log}}_{2}0.5=-1$

So$x=-1$

Here,

So

Explanation:

Rewrite 0.5 as$\frac{12}{}$ , then make the exponents equal each other.

${2}^{x}=0.5$

$2}^{x}=\frac{12}{$

$2}^{x}=\frac{1}{{2}^{1}$

$2}^{x}={2}^{-1$

$2}^{x}={2}^{-1$

$x=-1$

Rewrite 0.5 as

The Gompertz model has been used to model population growth

$\frac{dy}{dt}=ry\mathrm{ln}\left(\frac{K}{y}\right)$

where$r=0.71$ per year, $K=46,300$ kg, $\frac{{y}_{0}}{K}=0.38,y\left(0\right)={y}_{0}$

Use the Gompertz model to find the predictet value of y(5).
