I'm going over practice problems during break and I am stumped on this one. Forgot how to do exponential...The answer in my book says 10.683 hours.

Thank god its practice, il still try to figure it out

yeah i know! but out of everything I am reviewing I am totally missing something here...I'm pretty sure I need to find the rate and then just plug that into the log.

Are you familiar with the exponential growth equation \[N = N _{0} e ^{kt}\]

yes

Well, we know N0 is the initial population. N0 = 20. This corresponds to time t = 0. We also know that the population, N, triples every three hours. Thus when t = 3, N = 60. Plug these numbers in and solve for k. Then you will have a general equation.
