Suppose that the number of bacteria in a certain population increases according to a continuous exponential growth model, with a growth rate parameter of
11%
per hour. Suppose also that a sample culture of
1000
bacteria is obtained from this population. Find the size of the sample after two hours. Round your answer to the nearest integer.
