The accompanying table shows the number of bacteria present in a certain culture over a 6 hour period, where x is the time, in hours, and y is the number of bacteria. Write an exponential regression equation for this set of data, rounding all coefficients to the nearest thousandth. Using this equation, determine the number of bacteria present after 14 hours, to the nearest whole number.

If the guest's editing is correct:  y  =  1348,38 · 1.11707x

 

This can be used to find the number of bacteria present after 14 hours.
