Suppose that the number of bacteria in a certain population increases according to an exponential growth model. A sample of 2600 bacteria selected from this population reached the size of 2873 bacteria in two and a half hours. Find the continuous growth rate per hour. Write your answer as a percentage. Do not round any intermediate computations, and round your percentage to the nearest hundredth.
