4b. Change the Age 1 mortality rate to 0.3. Run the simulation starting with 75 individuals, all in Age class 1. What happens? Is this a stochastic model? If not, why does it look like it has a random component?
No. It shows no randomness whether initial Age 1 population is 75 or 1000. Setting the time stamp to 0.1 eliminates the appearance of randomness.
