Part a
alligators: y=20(1.25)^x where x is years
crocodiles: y=10x+25

part b


y=20(1.25^4) = 48.82 so about 48 to 49

exponential growth since the number of alligators increases by a percentage


y= 10(4)+25 = 65

linear growth since the number of crocodiles increases by the same amount each year
