# A park began with a population of 8 rabbits. Every year, the rabbit population triples. How long will it take for the population to reach 1,944 rabbits?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:It will take 5 years for the population to reach 1,944. Option D is correct.Step-by-step explanation:Initial population = I = 8Final population = F = 1944number of years = xAs given, the population is tripled every year that can be calculated using:F = I*3^xBy putting values in this equation, we get1944 = 8*3^x1944/8 = 3^x 243 = 3^x3^x = 2433^x = 3^5 x = 5 bases are same so powers can be simplified.Therefore, it will take 5 years for the population to reach 1,944. Option D is correct.
