Please put the correct number and if you get it wrong it will come up, negs =/. Last test I got a 7/15. Help!

2. Y=A(B)^x

Y is the final amount
X is the amount of time
B is the rate of change.
A is the initial amount.

The compounding formula is Y=A(1+ r/n)^nt

Where n is the number of times compounded, t is the amount of time, a is the inital value, r is the rate of change, and y is the final value.

You can solve most of them with that calculator. I solved this one just as a test:

Tonya purchased a building for \$295,150. The land appreciates about 5.6% each year. What is the value of the land after 17 years?
\$745,297.04
\$110,806.87
\$319,460.14
\$576,132.80

But learn to do this **** man:

4. Can you do it? I'm so confused -___-

5. strong remedial math. go back to 1st grade jr.

Okay, look:

Galvin has deposited \$879 in a savings account that earns interest at a rate of 1.8% compounded quarterly. What will the account balance be in 14 years?

Y=A(1+r/n)^nt
with the variables as defined in my first post.

Y=879(1+.018/4)^4(14)

y=1130.3

\$894.82
\$1,582.20
\$1,130.28
\$2,387.07

The logical choice would be C.

That's compounded.

Simple is much easier:

Y=A(B)^x

Malory purchased a car for \$21,825. It depreciates about 5.8% each year. What is the value of the car after six years?

Y=21,825(.942)^6

(The .942 comes from 1-.058).

Y= 15,250

\$21,199.67
\$15,249.64
\$30,610.35
\$14,229.90

Logical choice would be B.

7. check ur cp you phag

Dude don't **** up math now. You still need it out of high school.

Strong stats phaggot.

10. bump -__-

11. Data Management class?

12. strong asian needing help with math.

14. fuk math

This... And holy shiiiit they give you guys multiple choice? Damn I havnt seen a multiple choice question in ages.

16. You need help with this ****? Wait till calculus and rates you dumbass.

17. Didn't you call out my math skills a while back?
PM me if you still need help

18. An A certainly fits your mathcros.

19. Still not sure if OP knows how to do these problems... Lol.

20. alg 2?

21. il try to help bro.

Timothy deposited \$1,023.48 in a savings account that earns 2.4% simple interest. What will Timothy’s account balance be in 5 months?

you gotta set it up like this (oh btw not the real way to do it BUT it gets the answer) also takes longer. but since u didnt get the formula.

you want to find out what 2.4% of 1,023.48 is. so 1,023.48 - 2.4%
____________________________________________ ? - 100%

1,023.48 * 2.4 = 2,456.35. Then you divide 2,456.35 / 100 = 24.56
24.56 * 5 (months) = 122.81 then 1,023.48 + 122.81 = 1,146.29

\$1,023.48
\$1,033.71
\$1,048.04

22. Oh yeah this is the guy who nailed his cousin lulz!

\$1,048.04
The answer to that question is 1033.71 though.

You have to divide 24.56 by 12 before multiplying it by 5 with your method.

24. ITT: OP is asian, and getting math help from a bodybuilding forum.

DDon are you in the tenth grade? When did you learn this stuff lol.

Simple interest is kind of Alg 1 stuff IIRC which was 8th grade and compounding interest was this year.

*realizes he was wrong* oops. Oh ****. How the eff did I graduate haha.

27. Different curriculum I suppose. I haven't seen compounding interest yet, and I don't remember even looking at simple interest. Have been taking highest available levels of math for the first two years of HS too.. (without going into sr. classes)

Which courses specifically have you taken?

This sounds right. I did this simple/compound stuff in grade 9. Lol writing a math exam today, garuntees 10 pages of graphing and trig equations, with only one of these questions thrown in... Damn

430 SAT math

feels bad man. I never got a good math teacher since 7th grade...
