6,470 grams, how many grams are left after 2 days?
2. Carlo’s online investment is worth Php870,000 on its 3rd year and Php650, 000
on its 7th year. What is the worth of his initial investment?
3. The pressure exerted on us by the atmosphere decreases exponentially as you
go up. The pressure at ground level is 1,013 hPa and decreases to 965 hPa at
381 meters. What is the pressure at the summit of Mt. Apo which is at 2,954

minutes. If you start with only one bacterium and follows an exponential growth
model, how many bacteria could be present at the end of 1 hour?
5. A certain breed of rats doubles its population every 2 months. Assuming there
were only 6 rats initially at a certain area, how many months will it take for the
population to grow to 68 rats?
