Step 1

First we write the formula$A=\text{Final amount}\text{}P=\text{principal amount}\text{}r=\text{rate of interest}$ (in decimals)

$n=$ number of times principal amount compounded in a year and $t=$ period of investment

$A=P{(1+\frac{r}{n})}^{nt}$

Step 2

Now we put the values$A=\$1200,$

$r=9\mathrm{\%}=0.09,\text{}n=1$ and $t=10$ years

$12000=P{(1+\frac{0.09}{1})}^{1\times 10}$

$12000=P(1.09{)}^{10}$

$12000=P\times 2.37$

$P=\frac{12000}{2.37}=\$5063.29$

Step 3

Answer:$\$5063.29$ to be invested to get the final amount $\$12000$ after 10 years compounded annually.

First we write the formula

Step 2

Now we put the values

According to a study by Dr. John McDougall of his live-in weight loss program at St. Helena Hospital, the people who follow his program lose between 6 and 15 pounds a month until they approach trim body weight. Let's suppose that the weight loss is uniformly distributed. We are interested in the weight loss of a randomly selected individual following the program for one month. Give the distribution of X. Enter an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.

Write an equation that models the linear situation:

A submarine 560 feet below the surface comes up 2.5 feet per second.

Instructions:

Do not use any spaces between variables, constants, equals signs, and operation signs.

For example DO NOT enter$f\left(x\right)=2x+1$ DO ENTER: $f\left(x\right)=2x+1$

Put parentheses around constants that are fractions like this:$y=\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)x-\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)$

You may use decimals if the decimal values are exact. (You cannot use .33 for 1/3 because it is not exact, but you can use 0.25 for 1/4)

To write your equation, use the variables:

$t=$ amount of time the submarine rises towards the surface (seconds)

$L\left(t\right)=$ see-level-position of the submarine (feet).
