If the number of bacteria in a colony doubles every 162 hours and there is currently a population of 105 bacteria what will the population be in 324 hours from now?

After 162 hours, there will be \(105 \times 2 = 210\) bacteria.

After 324 hours, there will be \(210 \times 2 = \color{brown}\boxed{420}\) bacteria

324 / 162 = 2

105 * 5 2^2 = 105 * 4 = 420

The population of bacteria will have 420
