## Global Stats

If a certain culture of bacteria increases by a constant factor of $$x$$ every $$y$$ minutes, how long will it take for the culture to increase to ten thousand times its original size?

1. $$x=10^y$$
2. In two minutes, the culture will increase to one hundred times its original size.
