Hey, it's Claire. So when you read here, you have us of A is equal to 0.882 A. To the point 84 to power. We're going to differentiate it. Using the power of all we got a 0.743 A. It is a negative 0.158 power. We substitute 100 for a We get around 0.36 maybe around two decimals. And that means there are 100 tree species in 0.36 square meters.
