GENERATION CALCULATOR 2

IMPORTANT:

SEXUAL:
1. The starting point is always 2 individuals at "generation 0".
2. The number of offspring per generation means the total number of offspring in the lifespan of the parents. (That is, the parents do not survive to the next generation)
3. Non numeric values are treated as a value of 0 (zero).
4. Number of generations must be a whole number. Offspring can be decimal.
5. Calculation follows this equation: answer = round((previous/2) X # per generation).
NOTE: you must have a least two parents to have offspring.

ASEXUAL:
1. The starting point is always 1 individual at "generation 0".
2. The number of offspring per generation means the total number of offspring in the lifespan of the parents. (That is, the parents do not survive to the next generation)
3. Non numeric values are treated as a value of 0 (zero).
4. Number of generations must be a whole number. Offspring can be decimal.
5. Calculation follows this equation: answer = round(previous X # per generation). Only one parent needed!
NOTE: you must have a least one parent to have offspring.
