Question

A population has the following characteristics. (a) A total of 75% of the population survives the first year. Of that 75%, 25% survives the second year. The maximum life span is 3 years. (b) The average number of offspring for each member of the population is 3 the first year, 6 the second year, and 3 the third year. The population now consists of 112 members in each of the three age classes. How many members will there be in each age class in 1 year?

there 1344 members in the first age class

84 members for the second age class; and

28 members for the third age class

Step-by-step explanation:

We can deduce that the age distribution vector x represents the number of population members for each age class; Given that in each class of age there are 112 members present.

The current age distribution vector is as follows: Also , the age transition matrix is as follows: After 1 year ; the age distribution vector will be :
