Detective EcoFriend has gotten word that purple loosestrife
spreads quickly and is hard to control. See how quickly it spreads by
moving your mouse over the picture and watch it grow. For more
information on purple loosestrife, visit the
Minnesota Sea Grant.
Each mature plant produces 2.7 million seeds each year. Each image
consists of two mature plants. Assuming all the purple loosestrife
plants in the picture are mature, calculate how many seeds will be produced in
a year. Your answer must include numbers and commas with the commas in
the right locations.
