An amoeba propogates by simple division: it takes 3 minutes for each split. We put such an amoeba in a glass container with nutriet fluid; it takes 1 hour unti the vessel is full of amobeas. How long will it take to fill the vessel, if we start not with 1 amoeba but 2?

-Simulate data for 1 amoeba in a glass container until you can see a definate pattern.

-Creat a function of time (call it f(t).) which will show the number of amoebas at anytime.

-How many amoeba does it take to fill the glass conatiner?

-Simulate data for starting with 2 amoeba in a glass container until you can see a difinite patter.

-Create a function of time (call it g(t).) which will show the number of amoebas at anytime.

-Use the function for starting with 2 amoeba and the knowledge of how many amoebas will fill the glass container to find out how long it takes to fill the glass conatiner when starting with 2 amoebas (NOTE: it takes longer than half an hour.)
