A biologist is studying a bacteria population that initially contains 10^3 bacteria. In the lab, the population doubles every week. The expression 10^3×2^w models the population of the bacteria after w weeks. How many bacteria will be present in 3 weeks? CK12

correct answer:

a + bi

8000

Step-by-step explanation:

From the question, we are informed that the expression 10³ × 2^w models the population of the bacteria after w weeks.

The number of bacteria that will be present in 3 weeks will then be:

= 10³ × 2^w

= 10³ × 2³

= 1000 × 8

= 8000 bacterias

where are the options?
