An influenza virus is spreading according to the function P(t)=50∙(2)^(t/2), where P is the number of people affected after t days.

Determine the number of people that had the virus initially.
Determine the number of people that will be infected in one week.
Determine how fast the virus will be spreading at the end of one week.
Determine the length of time it will take until 1000 people are infected.

Answer:

I don’t know how to solve all the questions, but plug in t= 1 week/7 days for the 2nd question, and P=1000 for the last one. Not sure if those will be right, but maybe it will help a bit
