1 312 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature 7.2 Exponential Patterns Recognize and describe an exponential pattern. Use an exponential pattern to predict a future event. Compare exponential and logistic growth. Study Tip Notice the difference between linear and exponential patterns. With linear patterns, successive numbers increase or decrease by the same amount. With exponential patterns, successive numbers increase or decrease by the same percent. Recognizing an Exponential Pattern A sequence of numbers has an exponential pattern when each successive number increases (or decreases) by the same percent. Here are some examples of exponential patterns you have already studied in this text. Growth of a bacteria culture (Example 1, page 152) Growth of a mouse population during a mouse plague (Example 3, page 154) Decrease in the atmospheric pressure with increasing height (Example 2, page 175) Decrease in the amount of a drug in your bloodstream (Example 3, page 176) Describe the pattern for the volumes of consecutive chambers in the shell of a chambered nautilus. Recognizing an Exponential Pattern Chamber 7: 1.27 cm 3 Chamber 6: cm 3 Chamber 5: 1.68 cm 3 Chamber 4: 1.5 cm 3 Chamber 3:.945 cm 3 SOLUTION It helps to organize the data in a table. Chamber 2:.889 cm 3 Chamber 1:.836 cm 3 Chamber Volume (cm 3 ) The exponential growth pattern of the chambers in a chambered nautilus was first recorded by the French philosopher René Descartes in Begin by checking the differences of consecutive volumes to conclude that the pattern is not linear. Then find the ratios of consecutive volumes The volume of each chamber is about 6.3% greater than the volume of the previous chamber. So, the pattern is exponential. Checkpoint Help at Use a spreadsheet to extend the pattern in Example 1 to 24 chambers. Then make a scatter plot of the data and describe the graph.

2 7.2 Exponential Patterns 313 Describing an Exponential Pattern 1 B.C. Approximate beginning of the Iron Age From 5 b.c. through 15 a.d., the population of Earth followed a growth pattern that was roughly exponential. Describe the growth pattern in words. 1 B.C. Augustus Caesar controlled most of the Mediterranean world. 1 A.D. The Song Dynasty in China had about one-fifth of the world s population. 2 B.C. Beginning of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt Millions of people Population of Earth B.C. 4 B.C. 3 B.C. 2 B.C. 1 B.C. 1 A.D. 2 A.D. Year 3 B.C. Stonehenge is built in England. SOLUTION Begin by finding the ratios of consecutive populations. 7 5 = = = = From these Earth population estimates, you can say that Earth s population was increasing by about 4% every 5 years. Checkpoint Help at 4 B.C. Civilization begins to develop in Mesopotamia. Did the growth pattern described in Example 2 continue through the next 5 years, up through the year 2? If not, why didn t the pattern continue?

3 314 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Using an Exponential Pattern to Predict a Future Event Predicting a Future Event It is estimated that in 1782 there were about 1, nesting bald eagles in the United States. By the 196s, this number had dropped to about 5 nesting pairs. This decline was attributed to loss of habitat, loss of prey, hunting, and the use of the pesticide DDT. The 194 Bald Eagle Protection Act prohibited the trapping and killing of the birds. In 1967, the bald eagle was declared an endangered species in the United States. With protection, the nesting pair population began to increase, as shown in the graph. Finally, in 27, the bald eagle was removed from the list of endangered and threatened species. The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is to work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. Number of nesting pairs 12, 1, 8, 6, 4, 2, Bald Eagle Nesting Pairs in Lower 48 States Year Assume that this recovery pattern continued. Estimate the number of nesting pairs of bald eagles in the lower 48 states in 211. Study Tip Using a computer and an exponential regression program, you can find that the best estimate for the increase (every 5 years) for the data in Example 3 is 52.8%. SOLUTION Begin by finding the ratios of consecutive populations From the data, it appears that the population increased by about 5% every 5 years. So, from 26 to 211, you can estimate that the population increased to 1.5(9789), or about 14,7 nesting pairs. Checkpoint Help at Suppose the recovery pattern continued for another 5 years. Predict the number of nesting pairs in 216.

4 7.2 Exponential Patterns 315 Predicting a Future Event Discuss the following graph prepared by the World Wildlife Fund. What exponential pattern can you see in the graph? SOLUTION From the graph, the estimated tiger population appears to be decreasing with an exponential pattern, as follows , 12, ,5 22, ,5 = =.76 Although the rate of decrease in each 5-year period varies, you need to remember that these data are difficult to collect and consequently are only an approximation. Even so, it appears that the tiger population is decreasing by almost 7% every 5 years. Checkpoint Help at Estimate the percent of remaining tiger habitat from 1985 through 21. Describe the pattern.

5 316 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Comparing Exponential and Logistic Growth Exponential growth can only occur for a limited time in nature. Eventually, the quantity that is growing reaches physical boundaries. The resulting growth is called logistic growth. Comparing Exponential and Logistic Growth The graph shows the growth of a culture of yeast cells that is introduced into a container of grape juice. Describe the growth. Yeasts are single-celled organisms. Most reproduce by asexual budding (splitting to form two new yeast cells). When yeast cells lack oxygen, they die and produce alcohol. This process is called fermentation. Number of yeast cells (millions) Growth of a Culture in Grape Juice Maximum sustainable population Exponential growth Decreasing growth rate One-half of maximum sustainable population Time (days) SOLUTION During the exponential growth stage, most of the energy of the yeast culture is devoted to reproducing itself. To do this, it uses the natural sugar that is in the grape juice. Wine fermentation has two stages called aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen) fermentations. After a few days in the first stage, most of the sugar and other nutrients in the grape juice are depleted. At this point, the oxygen source is removed and the growth rate of the yeast starts to decrease. Eventually, the yeast cells die (this is not shown in the graph). So, the population is limited by the food and oxygen available. Checkpoint Help at What is your opinion about the sustainable population level of humans on Earth? Do you agree with Thomas Malthus, who predicted that the human population will grow exponentially, creating a permanent class of poor? Explain your reasoning. Thomas Malthus is known for his theories on population growth. He claimed that populations are checked by famine, disease, and widespread mortality. 1. Population is necessarily limited by the means of subsistence. 2. Population invariably increases where the means of subsistence increase, unless prevented by some very powerful and obvious checks. 3. These checks, and the checks which repress the superior, power of population, and keep its effects on a level with the means of subsistence, are all resolvable into moral restraint, vice and misery. Thomas Malthus

6 7.2 Exponential Patterns 317 Comparing Logistic Patterns The graph shows four different strategies used by mother and baby fur seals to locate each other after the mother returns from hunting. Discuss the strategies. Which is more effective? After a fur seal pup is born, its mother nurses it for about 4 months. During this time, the mother makes frequent trips to sea to forage for food. Each time a mother returns from hunting, she has to locate her pup in the colony, which can have thousands of baby and adult seals. SOLUTION *Probability of success Here are some general observations about the graph. Seal Call Success.4 Pup s response.3 Call move.2 Call only Move only.1 None Mother s call rate (calls/min) Probability is discussed in Chapter In each strategy, the mother has more success locating her pup when she increases her bark rate per minute. 2. As the bark rate increases, the probability of success increases logistically. 3. If the mother calls at a rate of 2 barks per minute, she is almost certain to locate her pup, regardless of the pup s response. Here are some observations relative to the pup s response. The pup calls and moves. This is the best strategy for the pup. By calling and moving, there is a good chance that its mother will find it. The pup only calls. This is the second-best strategy for the pup. By calling, there is still a good chance that its mother can hear it through the noise of the colony. The pup only moves. This is not a good strategy for the pup. If its mother is calling at the rate of only 5 barks per minute, there is only a 6% chance that its mother will find it. The pup does nothing. This is the worst strategy for the pup. A pup who is too weak to call or move does not have a good chance of being found. Checkpoint Help at The above graph applies each time the mother goes to sea for food. Explain how the pup s chance for survival changes with multiple trips by the mother.

7 Week : 5 ft 2 Week 1: 7 ft Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature 7.2 Exercises Water Hyacinth An invasive species of water hyacinth is spreading over the surface of a lake. The figure shows the surface area covered by the water hyacinth over a 3-week period. In Exercises 1 4, use the figure. (See Examples 1 and 2.) Week 2: 98 ft 2 Week 3: 1372 ft 2 1. Is the pattern linear? Explain your reasoning. 2. At what rate is the surface area covered by the water hyacinth increasing? 3. Use a spreadsheet to extend the pattern to 2 weeks. Then make a scatter plot of the data and describe the graph. 4. The surface area of the lake is about 8, square feet. How many weeks does it take the water hyacinth to cover the entire lake? 5. Invasive Species An invasive species of water plant covers 15 square feet of the surface of a lake. The lake has a surface area of about 2,5, square feet. The surface area covered by the plant increases by 6% each week. Make a table and a scatter plot showing the surface area covered by the plant until the plant covers the entire lake. (See Examples 1 and 2.) 6. Invasive Species Suppose in Exercise 5 that the surface area covered by the plant increases by only 2% each week. How much longer does it take the plant to cover the entire lake? (See Examples 1 and 2.)

8 Rabbits A rabbit population is introduced to a new area. The graph shows the growth of the rabbit population. In Exercises 7 12, use the graph. (See Example 3.) 7.2 Exponential Patterns Growth of a Rabbit Population Number of rabbits Year 7. What does the population for year represent? 8. At what rate is the rabbit population increasing? 9. Suppose the population growth continued for another year. Predict the number of rabbits in year Suppose the population growth continued for another 3 years. Predict the number of rabbits in year When does the rabbit population exceed 3? 12. When does the rabbit population exceed 6? 13. Population Growth A rabbit population grows exponentially over a 1-year period. The population in year 3 is 15. The population in year 4 is 24. Predict the number of rabbits in year 1. (See Example 3.) 14. Disease Outbreak The outbreak of a disease causes a rabbit population on to decrease exponentially over a 6-year period. The population in year 2 is 12. The population in year 3 is 96. Predict the number of rabbits in year 6. (See Example 4.)

9 32 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Trout A lake is stocked with 2 trout. The graph shows the growth of the trout population. In Exercises 15 18, use the graph. (See Example 5.) 15. What is the maximum sustainable population? Explain your reasoning. 16. Make a table that shows the change in the number of trout for each year. Discuss any trends. 17. Make a table that shows the percent change in the number of trout for each year. Discuss any trends. Number of trout Growth of a Trout Population Year 18. Make a table comparing the number of trout for each year in the graph to the number of trout each year if the trout population grew exponentially by 6% each year. Why is exponential growth unrealistic in this situation? Competing Species The graphs show the growth of the populations of two competing species of fish when they are released into separate ponds and when they are released into the same pond. Assume all the ponds are the same size and have the same resources. In Exercises 19 and 2, use the graphs. (See Example 6.) Number of fish Growth of Populations in Separate Ponds Year Species A Species B Number of fish Growth of Populations in the Same Pond Species A Year Species B Compare the growth of the populations of the two species when they are released into separate ponds. 2. Compare the growth of the populations of the two species when they are released into the same pond.

10 7.2 Exponential Patterns 321 Extending Concepts Logistic Growth Rate In Exercises 21 24, use the information below. The formula for the logistic growth rate is population size r = r 1 ( maximum sustainable population) where r is the intrinsic growth rate in decimal form. 21. The population of squirrels in a forest is growing logistically. The intrinsic growth rate is 4% per year, and the maximum sustainable population is 5. Find the rate at which the population is growing when the population reaches (a) 1, (b) 2, and (c) The population of raccoons in a forest is growing logistically. The intrinsic growth rate is 5% per year, and the maximum sustainable population is 2. Find the rate at which the population is growing when the population reaches (a) 2, (b) 1, and (c) What is the growth rate when a population is at the maximum sustainable population? Explain. 24. Describe the growth rate when a population exceeds the maximum sustainable population. Explain what this represents in nature. Superexponential Growth In Exercises 25 and 26, use the information below. A population undergoes superexponential growth when the growth rate increases exponentially over time. 25. A population of 1 locusts is introduced to a new area. The initial growth rate is 5% per year. Make a table comparing the population of the locusts over a 1-year period when the growth rate remains constant (exponential) and when the growth rate increases by 2% each year (superexponential). Then make a scatter plot comparing the two data sets. 26. A population of 5 frogs is introduced to a new area. The initial growth rate is 6% per year. Make a table comparing the population of the frogs over a 1-year period when the growth rate remains constant (exponential) and when the growth rate increases by 1% each year (superexponential). Then make a scatter plot comparing the two data sets. 27. Riddle of the Lily Pad A single lily pad lies on the surface of a pond. Each day the number of lily pads doubles until the entire pond is covered on day 3. On what day is the pond half-covered? 28. Mutant Plant A mutant strain of water plant covers 1 square feet of the surface of a lake. The lake has a surface area of about 1,, square feet. At the end of each day, the surface area covered by the plant is double what it was at the beginning of the day minus the amount of plant cover that you clear. You can clear 5 square feet of plant cover in 1 day. On what day do you have to begin clearing the plant cover to stop the plant from spreading across the entire lake?
