Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can someone help me im stumped on this problem i need help please. A computer is infected with the Sasser virus. Assume that it infects 20 other computers within 5 minutes; and that these PCs and servers each infect 20 more machines within another five minutes, etc. How long until 100 million computers are infected?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0should be \[\frac{t}{5}\] or maybe what turing said, but we are neglecting the ones infected along the way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets try \[\sum_{k=1}^n20^k=10^8\] \[\frac{20^{n+1}1}{19}=10^8\] \[20^{n+1}=19\times 10^8\] \[(n+1)=\frac{\ln(19\times 10^8)}{\ln(20)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was summing the geomtric series \[20 + 20^2+20^3+...\] and seeing when it would equal 10^8
