A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:
A colony contains 1500 bacteria. The population increases at a rate of 115% each hour. If x represents the number of hours elapsed, which function represents the scenario?
f(x) = 1500(1.15)x Β f(x) = 1500(115)x
f(x) = 1500(2.15)x
f(x) = 1500(215)x
The answer to this problem is a f(x) = 1500(2.15)x
