A group of yeast cells grows by 75% every 3hrs. At 9am, there are 200 yeast cells.

 

a) write an equation that models the number of cells, given the number of hours after 9am

b) Determine the number of yeast cells after 10 hours.

1.75 ==1  x  R^3

1.75 ==R^3

R ==1.75^(1/3) ==1.20507113 - hourly rate of growth

 

Future population==200  x  1.20507113^10

                                 ==200  x  6.4584281

                                 ==1,292 - number of yeast cells 10 hours after 9:00 AM.
