The next day 3 fish die by eating themselves to death, and 4 of the guppy fry were eaten. The new population is 30 members. How many babies did the guppies have, counting the 4 that died? Answer Practice Problems: 600 • What is 19 fry/babies? HOME Practice Problems 800 • There is a school of 245 fish in the ocean. A pod of dolphins swims through and eats approximately 52 fish total. In the mayhem, 70 fish swim off and start a new school far away from the dolphins. Assuming there were no births, what is the new population of the fish? Answer Practice Problems: 800 • What is 123 fish? HOME Practice Problems 1000 • There is a population of 75 elephants in Africa. A group of poachers kill 41, and the populations split into 2 even populations as they panic and escape. In new population 1, 3 elephant calves are born.
