Suppose you started with 100 bacteria, but they still grew by the same growth factor. Write the function rule for this situation

y=100 x 8^x

y=100 x 4^x

y=8 x 100^x

y=4 x 100^x

  1. y = 100 * n^t
    when t = 0 , y = 100 * n^0 = 100*1 = 100
    when t = 1, y = 100 n
    when t = 2 , y = 100 * n*n etc
    Therefore either of the first two work
    4 or 8 are growth factor choices. You did not specify if it grows to 4 times in a generation or 8 times
