Exponential form 2017-07-06
From estela:

Answered by Penny Nom.
Exponential form 2017-03-04
From michael:
I was teaching my student about exponent when we stumbled across this problem.

"write (-125)^-3 in exponent form"

The problem is with the number "-125". I think -125 = (-5)^3. But one of my student thought that it is -125= -5^3.
Both of them is equal to -125 but they totally different in structure. I wonder which one is correct and why it is. I am worried if they get this wrong, it might spell problem in the future when we start substituting the numbers with variable.
Thank you very much for reading my question and answering it.

Paramecia reproduce by splitting in two. In a laboratory flask, a colony of paramecia had an initial population of 500. Each day, the population of the paramecia was counted. The results are as listed.
Time (in days)------Population
0-----------------------500
1-----------------------600
2-----------------------720
3-----------------------864
4----------------------1037
5---------------------1244
6---------------------1493

I think I did this part right I set my window at Xmin=0 Xmax=10 Xscl=1 Ymin=0 Ymax=2500 Yscl=100 Xres=1
2.) Determine an exponential equation to represent the population as a function of time without using a graphing calculator.I have no clue how to do this.
3.)Suppose the flask and food supply is large enough to support the trend of the population growth. Estimate the population of the colony when the time is 10 days.

Radioactive decay 2000-05-18

Please help me with the following: The radioactive isotope carbon-14 is present in small quantities in all life forms, and it is constantly replenished until the organism dies, after which it decays to carbon-12 at a rate proportional to the amount of C-14 present, with a half life of 5730 years. Suppose C(t) is the amount of C-14 at time t.
