**Apply It**

**Use the information below to solve Exercises 8â€”11. There is one skin cell used in a science lab. Each day,**

**the skin cell will split into two cells. The next day the cell then splits into two cells again.**

Question 8.

After several splits, there are 64 cells. How many have passed?

Answer:

6

Explanation:

The number of days passed is 6 for 64 cells.

5 days the number of cells is 32

In 6 days the number of cells is 64.

Question 9.

How many skin cells will there be after 8 days have passed?

Answer:

There will be 256 cells after 8 days have passed.

Explanation:

for 5 days the number of cells is 32

for 6 days the number of cells is 64

for 7 days the number of cells is 128

for 8 days the number of cells is 256.

Question 10.

How many days would need to pass before there were over 2,000 cells?

Answer:

The number of days would need to pass before there were over 2000 cells are 11 days.

Explanation:

Given for 8 days the number of cells is 256.

for 9 days the number of cells is 512.

for 10 days the number of cells is 1024.

for 11 days the number of cells is 2048.

Approximately number of days would need to pass before there were over 2000 cells are 11 days.

Question 11.

**Mathematical PRACTICE 1 Make a Plan** After 15 days, there were 32,768 cells. After how many days were there 16,384 cells?

Answer:

14 days were there 16,384 cells.

Explanation:

Given for 8 days the number of cells is 256.

for 9 days the number of cells is 512.

for 10 days the number of cells is 1024.

for 11 days the number of cells is 2048.

for 12 days the number of cells is 4096.

for 13 days the number of cells is 8192.

for 14 days the number of cells is 16,384.

**Practice**

Question 1.

Complete the table for Figures 4 and 5 if the above pattern continues.

Answer:

**Problem Solving**

Question 2.

A population of rabbits triples every month. The population starts with two rabbits. How many rabbits are there after three months?

Answer:

54 rabbits are there after three months.

Explanation:

A population of rabbits triples every month

2 Ă— 3 = 6

6 Ă— 3 = 18

18 Ă— 3 = 54

Question 3.

Three friends each create 4 bags of starter bread dough. After ten days, each of those four bags is then divided into four more bags of dough. How many days pass before 192 bags of dough are created?

Answer:

After 20 days.

Explanation:

Each of the friends has made 4 bags of dough.

This gives you 12 bags at the outset.

After 10 days all 12 bags are made into 4 Ă— 12 = 48 bags

After 20 days the 48 bags are made into 48 Ă— 4 = 192 bags.

Question 4.

Sam sent an E-mail to 3 friends on Monday. Each of the friends then sent an E-mail to 3 friends on Tuesday. On Wednesday, each of those friends then sent an E-mail to 3 friends. Write the prime factorization of the number of E-mails that were sent on Wednesday.

Answer:

The prime factorization of the number of E-mails that were sent on Wednesday is 21.

Explanation:

Sam sent 3 friends an email on Monday and each friend sent an email to 3 friends on Tuesday

Total of 3 + (3 Ă— 3) = 12 emails were sent by Tuesday.

The prime factorization of the number of E-mails that were sent on Wednesday.

3 + (3 Ă— 3) + (3 Ă— 3)

3 + 9 + 9

21

The prime factorization is 21 = 3 Ă— 7

Question 5.

**Mathematical PRACTICE 8** **Look for a Pattern** Annie opened a savings account and deposited $10. If the balance in her account doubles each month, what is the account balance after 4 months?

Answer:

$160.

Explanation:

10 Ă— 2 =20

20 Ă— 2 = 40

40 Ă— 2 = 80

80 Ă— 2 =160

Therefore $160 would be in her account.

Question 6.

Elyse folded a piece of paper in half 3 times. She then punched 3 holes in the paper. How many holes are in the paper when she unfolds it?

Answer:

24 holes.

Explanation:

Elyse folded a piece of paper in one half then the surfaces of the paper will become 2.

The surfaces formed again will be 2 Ă— 2 = 4

Then the paper is folded again for the third time then the surfaces become 2 Ă— 2 Ă— 2 = 8

Elyse punched a hole in the folded paper so the total holes will be 8

If we punch 3 holes then the total holes in unfolded paper will be 8 Ă— 3 = 24 holes.

Therefore, the holes formed when the paper is unfolded are 24 holes.
