Extra Credit Math: If a bee colony with 50,000 bees loses 30 percent of its bees during one winter, how many bees will survive that winter? Draw a simple graph to estimate how long it would take for the bee colony to collapse completely (less than 10,000 bees) if it lost 30 percent of its bees every winter, and gained only 5 percent each spring.
