In order to control an algae bloom in a lake, scientists introduce some treatment products. Once the treatment begins, the area covered by algae A, in square yards, is given by the equation, Time ,t , is measured in weeks

1. In the equation, what does the 240 tell us about the algae? What does the 1/3  tell us?
2. Create a graph to represent  when  is 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4. Think carefully about how you choose the scale for the axes. If you get stuck, consider creating a table of values.
3. About how many square yards will the algae cover after 2.5 weeks? Explain your reasoning.

1.240, tells us the initial amount of algae in the lake, \frac{1}{3} tells us the common decay factor.

2.When t = 0, A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{^0}=\ 240

When t = 1, A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{^1}=\ 80

When t = 2, A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{^2}\approx26.66

When t = 3,  A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{^3}\ \approx8.89

When t= 4, A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{^4}\approx2.97

3.Plugging in t = 2.5 in the equation gives us

A\ =\ 240\ \cdot\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)^{2.5}\approx15.4\ squareyards.
