Since we're modeling the number of bacteria, , at time, , according to the law of exponential growth;
Where is a constant representing the initial number of bacteria.
From the question;
There's this problem I have to do for calc, and I'm having a hard time getting it started.
The number of bacteria in a culture is increasing according to the law of exponential growth. There are 125 bacteria in the culture after 2 hours and 350 bacteria after 4 hours.
A) Find the initial population
We've only done problems where the initial population has been given to us. Could someone explain how to find it?
