A certain population of bacteria doubles every 10 minutes. If the number of bacteria in the population​ initially was $10^{4}$, what was the number in the population 1 hour later?

After 1 hour, the population has doubled (60/10) = 6 times

Therefore final population = (10^4) x 2 x 6 = 12 x 10^4 = 1.2 x 10^5
