Suppose that the amount of algae is a pond doubles every 3 hours. If the pond initially contains 70 pounds of algae, how much algae will be in the pond after 9 hours?

Is the answer 560? I was not sure how to set it up, but doubled it every 3 hours. If this is not correct, please show me how to solve.
