Quasiprobable solution of rainy day variations for set mating frequencies and male and female lengths in Centrobolus Cook, 1897

Abstract :

Two simultaneous equations were used to understand the relationships between male and female length, mating frequencies, and rainy days. The -0.35714286·x+6.10714286 = -31.88626865·x+69.14132913 (Male length-rainy days for controlled mating frequency equation) solution was x = 1.999237 mm. The -0.35714286·x+6.10714286 = -220.03498389·x+76.47648421 (Female length-rainy days for controlled mating frequency equation) solution was x = 0.32033 mm. Therefore when male length variations were inputted into the equation of (-0.35714286 \ left(1.999237 \ right)+6.10714286 = y), 5.39313 rainy days were recorded. Therefore when female length variations were inputted into the equation (-0.35714286 \ left(0.32033 \ right)+6.10714286 = y) 5.992739 rainy days were recorded. From this, we conclude that 5-6 rainy days resulted in the inverse relationship between mating frequencies and length in both sexes. Under these conditions, positive assortative mating was not possible based on length. Positive assortative mating based on width was possible because of the positive relationships between male and female width and mating frequencies. When male and female lengths for C. anulatus were inputted to generate the number of rainy days for controlled mating frequencies −18.535714 days were predicted to lapse with mating frequencies for male length and −21.035715 days were predicted to lapse with mating frequencies (a difference of three days with 6.883428 ml), and when C. inscriptus male length was inputted −17.821429 days were predicted to lapse with mating frequencies and when the female length was inputted -16.392857 days were predicted to lapse with mating frequencies (a difference of one day at 2.294476 ml/day). To calculate the possibility of size assortative mating the male and female width-rainy days for controlled mating frequencies may be calculated.
