    Hi guys,

    I've got an algebra investigation to do and as I'm taught by power point presentations I completely don't understand what the question is about...

    I have to use algebra to extend the model for the growth of bacteria colonies ( each bacterium divides into two every minute).
    You could investigate:
    a) The relationship between the number of bacteria and the size of the colony

    b) Different rates of replication

    c) Colonies of different sizes at the start

    d) Effect of growth limiting factors (such as build-up of waste products, competition for space)

    Explain all the steps of your analysis and state any assumptions you make in constructing your model. Give references for any data you use.

    Is there anyone who can explain it to me so I know what to do please?

    Thank you!
