Hi All, Please see attached image of a loglinear graph. Find the number of bacteria at 19s? Number of bacteria = 10x, where x? Thanks all.

At 19sec N=8000 Not sure what you are asking: At t=2sec N=20 The number of bacteria grow by a factor of 10 every 7sec

At 19 seconds, N appears to be about 6400, which would suggest N = 10*640^(t/19) approximately.

N=6400. You are plotting LogN but labelling the points N. So, for example, if N=3000, you plot Log3000=3 but you label the point 3000.

N is plotted, but using a logarithmic scale. The labels are consistent with that. Of course, the resulting line has the same appearance as would be obtained by plotting log(N) on a linear scale.
