What would be the equation for this?
A factory starts with 340 million items, and they make 1.7 million more on average every hour. Every 2 hours, they make 1% more than they did in the previous hours 2 hours before. Simple, I know a fraction and/or 0.01is in there somewhere >_>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"1.7 million more on average every hour." Does that mean that the hourly production increases by 1.7 million every hour?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hourly production is not exactly 1.7 million per hour, so they would be error. But, I'm just going to assume that 1.7 is the production rate for now  since I wouldn't know how to use an average.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am just struggling with the intepretation of the problem. It is written a bit abstruse for me.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for my understanding of the case is that they had 340 million from start, and after every 2 hours the hourly production grows by 10%.
