For a particular type of gas, n = −2.3 . At an instant when volume is 32 cm3, the
pressure is 105 units and the pressure is increasing at a rate of 0.2 units s 1.

## 9 In a medical research centre, a particular species of insect is grown for treatment of

open wounds. The insects are grown in a dry and cool container, and they are left to
multiply. The increase in the number of insects at the end of each week is at a
constant rate of 4% of the number at the beginning of that week. At the end of each
week, 10 of the insects would die due to space constraint and are removed from the
container.
A researcher puts y insects at the beginning of the first week and then a further y at the
beginning of the second and each subsequent week. He also decides that he will not
take any live insects out of the container.
(i) How many insects will there be in the container at the end of the first week?

(ii) Show that, at the end of n weeks, the total number of insects in the container is

(iii) Find the minimum number of complete weeks for the population of the insects
to exceed 13 y − 125 .
