Q:
# Two people become infected with a virus that spreads quickly. Each day that passes, the number of infected people triples. How can the number of infected people be determined from the number of days that have passed?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:nth day infected = [tex]=2(3)^{n-1}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:Given that Two people become infected with a virus that spreads quickly. Each day that passes, the number of infected people triples.This can be written asI day infected = 2II day infected = 2(3) = 6III day infected = 6(3) =18In general nth day infected = nth term of a geometic sequence[tex]=2(3)^{n-1}[/tex]where n is the number of dayUsing the above we can find out the number of people infected
