Ex 3 An ecologist is studying the population of two types of fish that live in a lake.
Type A: There are currently 5750 fish in the lake, and their population is decreasing
at a rate of 250 per year.
Type B: There are currently 3500 fish in the lake, and their population is increasing
at a rate of 500 per year.
Predict how many years it will take for there to be an equal number of each type of
fish in the lake.
Equation Type A:_____________________________
Equation Type B:_____________________________
