2000*2= 4000→ multiply it by 2 because a bacteria doubles every hour and there are 200 bacteria.

4000*5= 20, 000→ multiply it by 5 because it is asking how many bacteria will there be in 5 hours and there are 4000 bacteria every hour.

The Brainliest Answer!

there will be 64000 bacteria. You have to multiply it by two five times because it says that the bacteria doubles
