The Ministry of Health has started a campaign to eradicate the rodent population in St. Lucia. Research has proven that rodents are multiplying very rapidly. When 2 rodents are seen within a period of 10 minutes, it is believed that there is a breeding ground close by with approximately 600 rodents. Joe uses that information for a project.
(a) If in one hour, Joe saw 20 rodents, what is the approximate rodent population near by?
(b) If one bait is used for every 5 rodents, how many pieces of bait are needed to eradicate that present population?
