Two bacteria are discovered at the bottom of a shoe. If the bacteria multiply at a rate of 34% per hour, how many bacteria will be present after 48 hours?

 

-The percentage needs to be converted into a decimal and then put into the equation.

y = 2 x 1.34^48

y = 2 x     1,261,916

y = 2,523,832 - number of bacteria after 48 hours.
