The answer is C. The rate the population increases. The 960 in the equation represents the population at a certain number of weeks which is x. The starting population describes the quantity 15. The number of weeks that have passed is described as the 6 weeks. 

The equation would be described as: f(x) =15*(2^x) and f(x) =960
