To begin a bacteria study, a petri dish had \( 1500 \) bacteria cells. Each hour since, the number of cells has increased by \( 8.2 \% \) . Let \( t \) be the number of hours since the start of the study. Let \( y \) be the number of bacteria cells. Write an exponential function showing the relationship between \( y \) and \( t \) . 

Answer
