Monthly Brain Teaser and Februarys AnswerFriday, March 9th, 2012
Last month you were told that a scientist is growing bacteria in a laboratory dish. Once a minute each bacterium divides into two. She places one bacterium in the dish at 9.30am. At 10.20am the dish is half full. You were asked at what time it would be full.
Well, since the number of bacteria doubles each minute and the dish is now half full, it will be completely full in one minute’s time – at 10.21am.
