The number of bacteria in a certain population is predicted to increase according to a continuous exponential growth model,
at a relative rate of 9% per hour. Suppose that a sample culture has an initial population of 49 bacteria. Find the predicted
population after four hours.
Do not round any intermediate computations, and round your answer to the nearest tenth.
