Homework Help: Calculus

A bacteria culture contains 200 cells initially and grows at a rate proportional to its size. After half an hour the population has increased to 360 cells.
(a) Find the number of bacteria after t hours.
(b) Find the number of bacteria after 4 hours.
I found part a, P(t)= 200e^(1.2*t)
but when I solve part b it's different than the model answer!
