**Section 3.2 Exponential Functions**• 1. Use a calculator to evaluate, rounding to three decimal places. • a. e 2 • b. e -2 • c. e½ • a. ≈ 7.289 • b. ≈ 0.135 • c. ≈ 1.649**2. Express as a power of e**a. e 5 e -2 b. c. • = e 5+(-2) = e 3 • e 3-2 = e 2 • = = = e 4-(-1) = e 5**3. Graph y = 3 x on a graphing calculator.**- 5 < x < 5 and -1 < y < 100**4. Graph y = (1/3) x on a graphing calculator.**- 5 < x < 5 and -1 < y < 100**5. Evaluate e 1.74 using a calculator.**e 1.74 = 5.696**6. BUSINESS: Interest - Find the value of $1000 deposit in**a bank at 10% interest for 8 years compounded a. anually b. quarterly c. continuously • For n = 1 m = 1 (annual compounding), P(1+r/n)nt simplifies to P(1+r)t • when P = 100, r = 0.1, and t = 8. The value is • 1000(1 + 0.1)8 = 1000 (1.1) 8 = 2143.59 • The value is $2143.59 • For quarterly compounding, n = 4, P = 1000, r = 0.1, and t = 8. Thus • 1000(1+(0.1/4) 4x.8 = 1000(1 + 0.025) 4x.8 • = 1000 (1.025) 32 = 2203.76 • The value is $2203.76 • For continuous compounding P = 1000, r = 0.10, and t = 8. Thus • 1000e 0.1x8 – 1000e 0.8 = 2225.54 • The value is $2225.54**7. Personal Finance: Interest - A loan shark lends you $100**at 2% compound interest per week (that is a weekly, not annual rate). • How much will you owe after 3 years? • In “street” language, the profit on such a loan is known as the “vigorish” or the • “vig”. Fins the shark’s vig. • P = 100, r = 0.02 x 52 = 1.04 yearly, and n = 3. • this gives a value of • 100(1 + (1.04/52)) 52x3 • = 100(1.02) 52x3 • = 100(1.02) 156 • = $2196 • b. The “vig” is equal to the amount owed after three years minus the amount • loaned. This is $2196 - $100.00 = $2096**8. Personal Finance: Annual Percentage Rate (APR) - Find the**error in the ad shown below, which appeared in a New York paper. [Hint: Check that the nominal rate is equivalent to the effective rate. For daily compounding, s some banks use 365 days and some use 360 days in the year. Try both ways. The stated rate of 9.25% (compounded daily) is the normal rate of interest. To determine the effective rate of interest, use the compound interest formula, P (1 +r) n, with r = 9.25%/ number of days and n = number of days in a year. Since some banks use 365 days and some use 360 in a year, we will try both ways. If n = 365 days then, Then P(1+r) n = P(1.0002534) 365 ≈ 1.0969%. Subtracting 1 gives 0.0969, which expressed as a percent gives the effective rate of interest as 9.69% If n = 360 days then Then P(1+r) n = P(1.0002569) 360 ≈ 1.0969% and the effective rate is also 9.69% Thus, the error in advertisement is 9.825%. The annual yield should be 9.69% (based on the nominal rate of 9.25%) At T&M Bank, flexibility is the key word. You can choose the length of time and the amount you deposit, which will earn an annual yield of 9.825% based on a rate of 9.25% compounded daily.**9. Personal Finance: Present Value - A rich uncle wants to**make you a million. How much money must he deposit in a trust fund paying 8% compounded quarterly at the time of your birth to yield $1,000,000 when you retire at age 60? If the amount of money P invested at 8% compounded quarterly yields $1,000,000 in 60 years then and n = 604 = 240. 1,000,000 = P(1 +0.02) 240**10. Personal Finance: Zero-Coupon Bonds - FUJI Holding**recently sold zero-coupon $1000 bonds maturing in 3 years with an annual yield of 10%. Find the price. [Hint: the price is the present value of $1000, 3 years from now at the stated interest rate] For 10% compounded annually, r = 0.10 and n = 3. Present value =**11. General: Compound Interest - Which is better 10%**interest compounded quarterly or 9.8% compounded continuously? To compare two interest rates that are compounded differently, convert them both to annual yields. 10% compounded quarterly: P(1+r) n = P(1.025) 4 ≈ P(1.1038) Subtracting 1, 1.1038 – 1 = 10.38%. 9.8% compounded continuously, Pe rn = Pe 0.098 ≈ P(1.1030) Subtracting 1: 1.130 – 1 = 0.1030 The effective rate of interest is 10.30%. Thus, 10% compounded quarterly is better than 9.8 compounded continuously.**12. Personal Finance: Depreciation - A Toyota Corolla**automobile lists for $15,450, and depreciates by 35% per year. Find the • values after: • 4 years b. 6 months • Since the depreciation is 35% per year, r = 0.35. • P(1 +r) n = 15,450(1 – 0.35) 4 ≈ $2758 • P(1 +r) n = 15,450(1 – 0.35) 0.5 ≈ $12,456**13. General Nuclear Meltdown: - The probability of a**“severe core meltdown accident” at a nuclear reactor in the U.S. within the next n years is 1 – (0.9997) 100n. • Find the probability if a meltdown: • within 25 years. b. within 40 years • a. 1 = (0.9997) 100(25) ≈ 0.5277 • b. 1 – (0.9997) 100(40) ≈ 0.6989**14. General: Population - As stated earlier, the most**populous state is California, with Texas second but gaining. According to the Census Bureau, x years after 2005 the population of California will be 36e0.013x and the population of Texas will be 22e 0.019x (all in millions) a. Graph these two functions on a calculator on the window [0,100] by [0,150]. b. In which year is Texas projected to overtake California as the most populous state? [hint: use INTERSECT] a. • During the year 2087 (x ≈ 82.08) • And 2005 + 82 = 2087.
