Calculus

I just need help with one question.

A bacteria population starts with 500 bacteria and grows at a rate of r(t) = 548e^(6.5t) bacteria per hour.

Determine the number of bacteria after 1 hour.

Thank you!

    P = 84.3 e^(6.5 t) + 415.7
    if t = 1
    P(1) = 84.3 e^6.5 + 415.7
    = 56,487
