Q:
# WILL GIVE BRAINLIESTThe graph models how the population of a particular species of flower in a forest has changed over time.What does the y-intercept represent?A. The flower population peaked at 200.B. When initially counted, the flower population was 200.C. The difference between the greatest and least populations was 200.D.It took 200 years for the flower to disappear from the forest.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:B. When initially counted, the flower population was 200. Step-by-step explanation:We know that the graph models how the population of a particular species of flower in a forest has changed over time. We can find the y-intercept of the graph by looking for the point of the graph that intercepts the y-axis. This point is [tex](0,200)[/tex].Because the x-axis represents the time (in years) and the y-axis represents the population, we can conclude that the point [tex](0,200)[/tex] represents that when initially counted (at time zero) the flower population was 200. Therefore the correct option is B.
