Determine the rate of growth in the population of ants for each of the ten days:

Day 0 - 65 ants

Day 1 - 72 ants

Day 2 - 79 ants

Day 3 - 87 ants

Day 4 - 95 ants

Day 5 - 104 ants

Day 6 - 114 ants

Day 7 - 123 ants

Day 8 - 134 ants

Day 9 - 146 ants

Day 10 - 161 antsI believe to solve this you need to use the equation P=PoR^(t/h) where:

P = population

Po = original population

R = rate of growth

t = time

h = time it takes for R to occur.

I've tried using the aforementioned formula, but can't determine what "h" would be? And surely the time would be the number of the day?
