Show that N(t)=40e^t ln2

Can someone please guide me step by step on this question? Im really confused. thanks.

I tried to work it out, and this is what I got.

N(t)= 40 x 2^t

= 40 x ln 2^t

= 40 x t ln 2

**Steve**, Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 12:25amby definition, 2 = e^(ln 2)

Therefore, 2^t = e^(ln 2)^t = e^(t ln 2)

Make sense yet?

Now, ln (2^t) = t * ln 2

So, ln N = ln 40 + t ln 2
