How to calculate exponention

Did you know that there are more bacteria cells in your body than cells that make up your body? Weird! A bacteria culture starts with 500 bacteria and doubles in size every hour. Which means, after 1 hour the number of bacteria is 1000, after 2 hours - 2000, and so on. Let’s calculate and output the number of bacteria that will be in the culture after 24 hours
