 Problems 1a - 1b: Graph the following functions.

1a.

 x (x, y) -2 (-2, .03) -1 (-1, .17) 0 (0, 1) 1 (1, 6) 2 (2, 36)

1b.

 x (x, y) -2 (-2, -36) -1 (-1, -6) 0 (0, -1) 1 (1, -.17) 2 (2, -.03)

 Problem 2a:   Find the 1) compound amount AND 2) the compound interest for the given investment and rate.

2a. \$25000 for 21 years at an annual rate of 3.25% compounded quarterly.

 Answer: P = 25000 r = 3.25% = .0325 t = 21 n = quarterly = 4 times a year Compound Amount: \$49334.23 Compound Interest: \$24334.23

 Problem 3a: Find the accumulated value for the given investment and  rate.

3a. \$4525 that is compounded continuously for 12 years at an interest rate of 9 ½ %.

 Answer: P = 4525 r = 9.5% = .095  t = 12 So the accumulated or compound AMOUNT would be \$14148.63.

 Problems 7a - 7b: Graph the following functions.

7a.

 y (x, y) -2 (.01, -2) -1 (.11, -1) 0 (1, 0) 1 (9, 1) 2 (81, 2)

7b.

 y (x, y) -2 (2.001, -2) -1 (2.012, -1) 0 (2.11, 0) 1 (3, 1) 2 (11, 2)

10b.

 Problems 11a - 11c:    Solve the given exponential equation.  Round your answer to two decimal places.

11a.

11b.

11c.

 Answer: Since e raised to a power cannot equal a negative number, there is only one solution, x is approx 1.61.
