# Simulating Real Plant Growth

Not what you're looking for?

Assuming that plant grows in 8 steps at the 0.45 rate and that the first stem lenght is 20mm - This is what I have so far:

1/ I made a table showing the length of the plant's stem at the end of each step.

2/ I made a graph of the values in the table

3/ I, of course, wrote a formula representing the growth for each step:

new length=old length + 0.45xold length

Here is the problem:

What else could I do with this data? What other relationships could I determine between the steps?

Remember, you demonstrate knowledge through using a spreadsheet and performing analysis with a purpose.
