okay, this is a weird problem...thanks to anyone who can solve it
A certain strain of bacteria is living in a can. They are good at reproducing and are capable of doubling their population every 60 seconds. Unfortunately, they only live for 1 hour. The first bacterium invaded the can at 10:00 PM and at 10:57 PM one bacterium shouts, "We've been alive for 57 minutes and the can is only one-eighth full. Party."
--A--How much longer will the party go on?
As 11:00 approaches, an expedition is formed to locate a new can to live. A returning bacterium announces, "Hooray, we have located 3 more empty cans. Thats three times more space than we've ever had in our entire existence.
--B--How much more time has the expedition provided?
