The following geometric sequences represent the populations of two bacterial cultures after 0 hours, 1 hour, 2 hours, and so on. Culture A starts with more bacteria, but culture B has a ratio of increase that is twice as large. Which culture will have the greatest population after 10 hours?
Culture A: 1000, 1500, 2250, 3375, ...
Culture B: 1, 3, 9, 27, ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the population after 10 hours will be a1 r^9 where a = starting population and r = common ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the common ratio for A is 1500/1000 = 1.5 and for b its 3/1 = 3
