So for this problem:

 

CPhill said that for #4, After 15 years...there will be   1000 / [ 1 + 9e^(-.4 * 15) ]  ≈  978  bluegills. What I'm wondering, is what exactly (or how exactly) he put the function in the calculator to get 978. Because when I put the function in my calculator, I didn't get approx 978.

 

Also, can somebody tell me how I would figure out #3 (What is the point of maximum growth?)?

 

Many thanks to anyone who helps!!!

But what exactly did you put into ur calc? Because my worksheet requires me to show my work. So I need to know what you or CPhill put in his/your calc.

Use your formula above and plug in 15 for t as follows:

 

P(t) = 1000/(1 + 9 e^(-(0.4×15)))

       = 1000/(1 + 9* e^-6)

       = 1000/(1 + 9* 0.00247875....)

       = 1000/(1 + 0.022308767)

       = 1000/(1.022308767)

       = 978.178

Thanks, guest!

So for #3, the point of maximum growth would be 1000 right?
