Exponential Growth and Decay - Problem 6

Explanation

If a population is doubling, we'll use base 2 (this is like 100% growth, or a growth rate or 1), or if it's tripling, we'll use base 3. From there, we need to determine how many "doublings" will occur in the given time period to use in the exponent. If this formula doesn't make sense or feels uncomfortable, you could always make a table of values, but this often takes more labor on your part.
