The two main equations used in this activity were for carrying capacity and population rate growth. K represented the carrying capacity and N was used to represent the population, t was used to show generation, r represented rate of increase each year. By changing the values for things such as rate of increase, a changing trend can be seen in the population. Depending on the different factors playing on the population, it fluctuated as seen throughout this activity. Increasing r values increased overall population and decreasing K values decreased population. The main equations are shown below.
