Marcus is doing a science experiment in which he measures the rate at which bacteria multiply. Every 15 seconds the bacteria double in number. If there are 10 bacteria now, how many will there be in 2 minutes?

  1. 2 min = 8*15sec
    so, it will double 8 times.

    10 * 2^8 = ?

  4. Since every 15 seconds the bacteria doubles...15 divided by 2 = 8
    There are 10 bacteria now so...
    10 x 2 x 8 = 160 bacteria
    Hope it helped this was kinda of hard even for me being in very advanced math LoL
