MODERATE EXERCISES-Modelling with Trigonometric Functions
(2) A population of animals varies sinusoidally between a low of 700 on January 1 and a high of 900 on July 1.
- Graph the population against time.
- Find a formula for the population as a function of time, t, measured in months since the start of the year.
- According to your formula, what is the population on March 15?
(b) f(t) = 800 - 100cos(t/6)
(c) On March 15 (t = 2.5 months), the population is 774
