Daisy purchased a rabbit couple to keep as pets. Perhaps Daisy got more than she bargained for! If the population of rabbits doubles every 3 months, how many rabbits will Daisy have at the end of 3 years? (Hints: Remember that your starting number is 2. The exponent is determined by the number of periods of doubling. Use your calculator.)

    After period 1 it will be 2x2=4 After period 2..............4 x2=8 Use 2 as your starting number and 12 as the exponent to get the correct answer.
