4. The number of rabbits in a farm increases at a rate proportional to the number of rabbits

at a certain time. The number of rabbits doubled to 10000 from the beginning of the year

1985 until the beginning of 1990. At that time, an outbreak of a certain disease occurred in

the farm which caused the death of rabbits at the rate of 100 rabbits per month. No vaccine

was found until the beginning of the year 1992. Find the remaining number of rabbits that

survived just before the vaccine was found. [9 marks]
