because linear equations are a lot simpler than quadratics equations, and linear equations formula is a lot easier to memorize. that's why i think they're harder.
If 3000 cells are cultured at a daily growth rate of 7%, the expression that describes the total population after 't' days is:
When 360 cell are reproduced, the total population is 3000 + 360, and the time required for that condition to occur is:
It will take 1.675 days for 360 new cells to reproduce.
