## anonymous 5 years ago A population of bacteria is growing according to the equation P(t)=1150e^(0.05(t)). Estimate when the population will exceed 1552.

how do we find t?:) thanks

$1150e^{.05t}=1552$ $e^{.05t}=\frac{1552}{1150}$ $.05t=ln(\frac{1552}{1150})$ $t=\frac{ln(\frac{1552}{1150})}{.05}$
