A population of 500 E. coli bacteria doubles every 15 minutes. Use this information to find an expression for this population growth. Using this expression, find what the population would be in 87 minutes. Use an exponential model.

so P(o) would be 500,
and then would t be 15 or 0.25 and wowhat would k be? 2?
