here is the problem: Scientists can estimate the amount of bacteria in a refrigerated food by using the formula 0.2b=T^2/20 where b is the number of bacteria and t is the number of seconds. What is the approximate time a food was in the refrigerator if there are 625 bacteria?

\(0.2 \times 625 = T^2/ 20 \\ \implies T^2 = 0.2 \times 625 \times 20 = ....\)

T^2 is 2500 so T = 50 seconds :)
