Hi everyone,

Can you please tell me if this is correct?

A bacteria population starts with 400 bacteria and grows at a rate of r(t)=(450.268)e1.2567t bacteria per hour. How many bacteria will there be after three hours?

I did:

r(t)=ln450.268e1.2567(3)

=(1.2567)(3)ln450.268

=3.7701(6.10984261)

r(t)=23.034 bacteria

I'm not sure if I did it right. This seems too easy.

Thank you
