coffee takeover equation

on monday, july 14th, 2008, the coffee consuming masses will stand in awe as brew nerds will unveil another coffee distribution facility, in the neverending pursuit of complete earthly coffee conquest.

that means, exactly 143 days after the brew nerds prototype model began supplying area winston-salem nerds with mind blowing coffee, the operation has now doubled in size.

using this data and a small bit of optimism, i have created the following exponential growth model to determine the number of brew nerds stores there will be at any given time:
N = e^(1.774069008t)
[or more accurately: N = e^(366ln(2)t/143)]
where N is the number of Brew Nerds stores and t is time, measured in years since the opening of the first store (2008).

furthermore, at the rate of growth, i can estimate that it will be 5.4206113 years (5 years, 153 days, 12 hours, 33 minutes, 18.58170182 seconds) until brew nerds overtakes the evil mermaid, who currently operates 15,011 stores.

and lest i forget, here are the details surrounding the opening of the new brew nerds store:
opening date: july 14th, 2008.
location: 305 w. 4th street, winston-salem, nc (formerly "sin coffee bar").
coffee iq: 160

note: calculations performed on ti-84 plus silver edition graphing calculator.
