Suppose that you are hired by a local gardening association to monitor the populations of stink bugs in two different locations for one full year. Using the capture/recapture method, you collect the data shown in the table below.
Based on the information you have collected, which of the following is the growth rate for Population A?
|Population A||Population B|
|Starting number of stink bugs||1000||600|
|Number of new stink bugs hatched||200||60|
|Total number of stink bugs that die||40||200|
