In a lake the amount of fish can be calculated by using the formula F = 1500 - 900/1+0,2t.

F is the amount of fish and t is the time in weeks with t = 0 being january 1st.

a. Calculate how much the amount of fish has increased after the first year. *(this is my calculation but i'm not sure if it's right.)*

*F = 1500 - 900/1+0,2t*

*1500 - 900/1+0,2*52*

*1500 - 900/11,4 *

*1500 - 1421 = 79*

b. Give a equation of the horizontal asymptote of the graph of F

c. What does horizontal asymptote mean

d. The graph of the formula of F also has a vertical symptote, explain why the vertical symptote doesn't really mean anything.

*Sorry, English isn't my native language but this assignment is confusing me*

Thank you for the reply. I'm Dutch! I'm kind of fluent in English but sometimes the terms I use aren't really correct to use in math, sorry for that. Also a. and d. were easier than I expected, I should've thought more about it haha

I don't quite get what the horizontal sympote stands for though. Could you explain please?
