o begin a bacteria study, a petri dish had 2500 bacteria cells. Each hour since,

Question Description

the number of cells has increased by 7.2%.Let t be the number of hours since the start of the study. Let y be the  of the bacteria cells.Write exponential function showing the relationship between y and t .

y

Final Answer

y = a(1+r)^x

a = initial amount before measuring growth

r = growth rate

x = number of time intervals that have passed

So,

y = 2500(1+.072)^t
