    Simulating Real Plant Growth

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    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.
