Project Hints

On questions 4, 5, and 6, several groups have asked me the same question, which told me that they did not understand that modeling the population means looking at the values of $\mathbf{x}^{(k)}$ for several different values of k. That is, to see trends in the population, you have to model the population for a longer time. This is done by increasing the value of the exponent in the command
evalm(A1^4&*x0);
which gives the population vector after 4 measurement periods. To compute the population after 10 measurement periods, use the command below.
evalm(A1^10&*x0);
You should increase the exponent until you are sure you see the trend in the population.
