In 2020, a country had approximately 100,000 hectares of forests. Every decade, it is estimated that the number of hectares of forests will decrease by 20%. In order to slow down this deforestation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) has decided to plant 3,000 hectares of trees every decade.
- How many hectares of forests will there be in 2030? 2040?
- Here is a function written in Python ($n$ is the number of decades):
def forest(n): h = 100000 for k in range(n): h = h * 0.8 + 3000 return h
- Explain the algorithm.
- Run the algorithm step by step for $n = 3$
- Complete the following algorithm to find the year when the number of hectares of forests will go below 30,000 for the first time. Explain.
def year(): n = 0 h = 100000 while h ... n = n + ... h = ... return 2020 + ...
