## College Algebra (6th Edition)

This situation fits with The logistic growth model, given by $A=\displaystyle \frac{c}{1+ae^{-bt}}$, (a,b,c are constants and $c>0, b>0$) describes situations in which growth is limited. $y=c$ is a horizontal asymptote for the graph, and growth, $A$, can never exceed $c$. ------------------ You will not be able to increase the weight without bound. Collecting data and calculating the model, you will find what a, b, and c are. By knowing your c, you may predict the MAXIMUM weight you might EVER be able to lift.
