A culture of bacteria increases in a number at a compound rate of 0.08% per hour.  If initially there was a culture of 5000 cells, how many cells will there be after 1 week​

1 week = 7 days = 24 hours.

7 x 24 =168 hours in 1 week

 

N =5,000 x [1 + 0.0008]^168

N =5,000 x [1.0008]^168

N =5,000 x      1.143788809294......

N =~5,719 cells after 1 week.
