Initially, 80 bacteria are placed in a Petri dish. It is observed that the bacteria triple in population every 5 hours.

How can this information be interpreted?

Select True or False for each statement.

 

The scenario can be modeled by the function f(x)=80(3)^x/5 , where  f(x) represents the population of bacteria x hours after the bacteria are placed in the Petri dish. [TRUE or FALSE ?]

 

After 13 hours, there are approximately 1592 bacteria. [TRUE or FALSE ?]

After 13 hours, there are approximately 1592 bacteria. [TRUE or FALSE ?]-THIS IS FALSE!. THE NUMBER SHOULD BE: 1392 NOT 1592!.
