SITE-A teams: Lesson 8
A certain culture of bacteria doubles every hour. This type of growth is commonly called exponential growth and it is quite rapid.
Can you develop a table that displays what the bacteria count is every hour given an initial bacteria count of 100 and allowing the growth to take place over the next 10 hours?
Let X represent the time (in hours) over which the bacteria is allowed to grow, and let Y be the bacterial count.
Turn on theCASIO fx7400G.
Use your cursor arrows to highlight the TABLE menu and press or just press when at the main menu screen. On an available Y-slot enter the expression 2x (100) and press
(Make sure no other Y-slot is highlighted, i.e. selected for computation.).Press (RANG)
Scroll down and set the parameters as follows:Press after entering each value.
