Question description

:  If the bacteria doubles every 20 minutes, then one bacterium becomes 2 in 20 minutes (1 multiplied by 2), those 2 become 4 in the next 20 minutes, and then those 4 become 8 in the next 20 minutes, etc... That means that 8 bacteria resulted in 1 hour. Now calculate the growth of bacteria for 15 hours. Your number of bacteria will be HUGE since the number will double every 20 minutes over 15 hours.
