9. Suppose an experimental population of amoeba increases according to the law of exponential growth. There were 100 amoeba after the second day of the experiment and 300 amoeba after the fourth day. Approximately how many amoeba were in the original sample?

A. 5
B. 33
C. 71
D. 10
E. Not enough information to determine

I posted this earlier, but I didn't really get a straightforward answer. I am confused as to how to set up the differential equation to represent this problem. Please help me make sense of this in a simple fashion!
