# In the 1990s, Brazil had a deforestation rate of about 0.48% per year. 1 (This is the rate at which land covered by forests is shrinking.) Assuming the rate continues, what percent of the land in Brazil covered by forests in 1990 will be forested in 2025? Give your answer correct to 3 decimal places. About Number % of the land will be covered in forests 35 years later if the rate continues.

Step-by-step explanation:

i am not sure about the answer but here are my steps. first he says in the 1990s there was a deforestation rate of about 0.48%per year. and 1 is the rate of land that is shrinking. this means that if Brazil had a forest of area x then

x (0.48%) = 1 therefore x=2.083

lets use that in this equation

the area left (the final answer) 2.083 (0.48) ^35 = 1.453

(i asked about the unit its measured with because if it is measured by thousands of squared meters or kilometers just big unit measured to be exact my answer would be correct)
