1000 bacteria at the end of day 5 of the test. From daily measurements, the growth rate of the number of

bacteria is determined to be 5% per day.

Note that:

A linear relationships is of the form y = A + kx

A logarithmic/exponential relationship is of the form y = Aekx

A power law relationship is of the form y = Axk

What type of graph will give a straight line plot of the number of bacteria vs. time?

Determine A and k for that form.

How many bacteria were in the sample when the test started at the beginning of day 1?
