A certain type of bacterial cell divides into two cells every hour. So, in a colony of these cells, the population doubles every hour.
Which of the following describes the rate of population growth in this colony?
both linear and nonlinear
neither linear nor nonlinear
GIVE ME THE RIGHT ANSWER!
Since the growth is doubling, the graph will not have a proportional relationship.
Therefore, the answer would be D: Nonlinear.
Hope this helped!
