EXP Function Programming Example
This example uses the EXP function to calculate the growth of a bacterial
colony over a 15-day period. The program prompts you for an initial
population and the rate of growth.
CLS ' Clear screen
INPUT "Initial bacterial population"; Colony0
INPUT "Growth rate per day as a percentage of population"; Rate
R = Rate / 100 : Form$ = "## ###,###,###,###"
PRINT : PRINT "Day Population"
FOR T = 0 TO 15 STEP 5
PRINT USING Form$; T, Colony0 * EXP(R * T)
NEXT
Sample Output
Initial bacterial population? 10000
Growth rate per day as a percentage of population? 10
Day Population
0 10,000
5 16,487
10 27,183
15 44,817
