Use the growth and decay formula to solve the following problem:

Zebra mussels from Europe began invading the Mississippi River in 1988. In 1997 a portion of the river contained an average of 10 zebra mussels per square mile. The exponential growth rate was 340% (k=3.4). Predict the number of mussels per square mile in this portion of the river in 2002 (five years later).

For number 1 I got 19 weeks?

number 2 I am not sure how to do this problem I just need some help with the formula.

Thanks!
