5-6.

What if the data for Lennie and George (from problem 5-1) matched the data in each table below? Assuming that the growth of the rabbits multiplies as it did in problem 5-1, complete each of the following tables. Show your thinking or give a brief explanation of how you know what the missing entries are.

1.  Months Rabbits months row 1$0$ rabbits row 1$4$ months row 2$1$ rabbits row 2$12$ months row 3$2$ rabbits row 3$36$ months row 4$3$ rabbits row 4 blank months row 5$4$ rabbits row 5 blank

What could be the multiplier? Check it with given values.

Use the multiplier to determine the missing values.

$3$ Months $=108$ Rabbits
$4$ Months $=324$ Rabbits

1.  Months Rabbits months row 1$0$ rabbits row 1$6$ months row 2$1$ rabbits row 2 blank months row 3$2$ rabbits row 3$24$ months row 4$3$ rabbits row 4 blank months row 5$4$ rabbits row 5$96$

To find the multiplier, think about what happens when you multiply by $2$.

Use the multiplier to determine the missing values.

$1$ Month$=12$ Rabbits
$3$ Months $=48$ Rabbits
