How many cell divisions would it take to produce at least 1,000 cells from one cell? (When one cell splits in half during cell division, the result is two new cells. Each of those cells can divide into two more and so on.)

  1. to do this you need to use indices:
    1x2=2, 2x2=4 2x2x2=8.. . .
    2^10(2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2) gives you 1024 cells so 10 divisions
