The mean number of termites collected in $1999$ is approximately $23247$.

Work Step by Step

$1999-1989=10$ years, so $t=10$. $ y=738e^{0.345t}\qquad$...Substitute $10$ for $t$ in the given function $ y=738e^{0.345\cdot 10}\qquad$...simplify. $ y=738e^{34.5}\qquad$...use calculator to solve. $y\approx 23247$
