Q:
# A certain species of bacteria grows at a rate of 48% per day. There are 500 initially, therefore the equation is y = 500(1.48)t. Write an equation for the amount of bacteria in terms of hours.

Accepted Solution

A:

The bacteria would grow at a rate of 2% per hour. ( 48% divided by 24 hours in a day = 2%). So, the equation would be y=500(1.02)t
