a culture started with 2000 bacteria. after 2 hour , it grew to 2,400 bacteria. predict how many bacteria will be present after 10 hours. round your answer to the nearest whole number.

Putting this information into the exponential growth formula gets you the equation y=100(2^x) where x equals the number of hours. Plugging in 12 for x, you get 409600.
