Some populations, such as bacteria, can be expected under the right conditions to show exponential growth. If 3500 bacteria of a certain type are incubated under ideal conditions, then after t hours we expect to find 3500 ✕ 1.07t bacteria present. How many bacteria would we expect to find after 12 hours? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
 
How many after 2 days? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

3500 x 1.07 (12)    after 12 hours        or perhaps you meant   3500 x 1.07t   then it would be 3500 x 1.0712

 

for two days use t = 48 hours in either of the above equations in place of '12'
