Suppose a population of 160 crickets doubles in size every month. The function gives the population after x months. How many crickets will there be after 2 years?
(1 point)2,684,354,560 crickets
640 crickets
7,680 crickets
655,360 crickets

1. 2 years is 24 six-month periods, so the population doubles 4 times = 2^24 times the original population.

2^24 ~= 10^7
160 ~= 10^2
so the result will be somewhere around 10^9

Looks like the 1st choice.

2. this is so wrong

10^9=1000000000
