Microorganisms

The first generation of micro-organisms has a population of 13500 members. Each next generation is 11/10 times the previous one. Find out how many generations will reach at least three times members of the first generation.

Result

n =  12

Solution:

q=1110=1.1  qn=3  n lnq=ln3  n1=ln(3)/ln(q)=ln(3)/ln(1.1)11.5267 n=n1=11.5267=12q=\dfrac{ 11 }{ 10 }=1.1 \ \\ \ \\ q^n=3 \ \\ \ \\ n \cdot \ \ln q=\ln 3 \ \\ \ \\ n_{1}=\ln(3)/\ln(q)=\ln(3)/\ln(1.1) \doteq 11.5267 \ \\ n=\lceil n_{1} \rceil=\lceil 11.5267 \rceil=12



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
