This exercise uses the population growth model. It is observed that a certain bacteria culture has a relative growth rate of 12% per hour, but in the presence of an antibiotic the relative growth rate is reduced to 6% per hour. The initial number of bacteria in the culture is 24. Find the projected population after 24 hours for the following conditions. (Round your answers to the nearest whole number.)(a) No antibiotic is present, so the relative growth rate is 12%.bacteria (b) An antibiotic is present in the culture, so the relative growth rate is reduced to 6%.bacteria
