A culture contains 1200 bacteria initially and doubles every 30 minutes. Assuming that the rate of growth is proportional to the number of bacteria, find a function that models the number P(t) of bacteria after t minutes.

P(t) = A e^(kt) = B^(2t/C)

, where A = 1200

k = 0.0231

B = ?

C = ?

I was able to figure out A and K fine. But where does B and C mean?

Thank you
