  • 5. Deer Population

    The table shows two data sets for the projected growth of a deer population in a forest.

    data folder

    Using set A, when does the deer population exceed 500?

    • Worked-Out Solution

      You can use a spreadsheet to find the year in which the deer population exceeds 500. From the spreadsheet, you can see that this happens in 2025.

  • 7. Deer

    The table shows two data sets for the projected growth of a deer population in a forest.

    data folder

    Suppose information from a previous study reveals that the deer population was 113 in 2007. Which model fits these data better? Explain your reasoning.

    • Worked-Out Solution

      Use a spreadsheet to find the populations for previous years.

      Set A: Linear pattern

      Set B: Exponential pattern

      From the spreadsheet, you can see that the exponential model fits the pattern better.

  • 8. Deer Population Growth

    The table shows two data sets for the projected growth of a deer population in a forest.

    Suppose the deer population is growing logistically and the maximum sustainable population is 500 deer. Sketch a graph that illustrates this type of growth for the deer population.
