One member of your group is a zombie. How long will it take everyone in New York City to become a zombie? Will it take 28 days? How long before everyone in the world is a zombie? Find a function that will model this and express it graphically and algebraically.

28 Days Later isn’t about zombies. It’s about a rage virus that spreads when the tested monkeys are released by a PETA-like bunch of hippies.

Yes, I realize that the general consensus is that 28 Days Later isn’t a zombie movie. However, I prefer a weaker definition of zombie movies, and the question is really about the spread of disease. So I’m using the limited discretion granted to me as a math teacher to define it as a zombie movie here.
