Algebra 2

If there are initially 1500 bacteria in a culture, and the number of bacteria double each hour, the number of bacteria after t hours can be found using the formula N=1500(2^t). How many bacteria will present after 7 hours?

I think the answer is N=192,000. Is this correct?

    1500*2^7=1500*128=192,000
    Yes the answer is correct!
