Simple Interest Formulas Simple interest is the interest that is computed on the original principal only. Simple interest is the interest that is computed on the original principal only. If I denotes the interest on a principal P (in dollars) at an interest rate of r per year for t years, then we have If I denotes the interest on a principal P (in dollars) at an interest rate of r per year for t years, then we have I = Prt The accumulated amount A, the sum of the principal and interest after t years is given by The accumulated amount A, the sum of the principal and interest after t years is given by A= P + I = P + Prt = P(1 + rt) and is a linear function of t.

Compound Interest Frequently, interest earned is periodically added to the principal and thereafter earns interest itself at the same rate. This is called compound interest. Frequently, interest earned is periodically added to the principal and thereafter earns interest itself at the same rate. This is called compound interest. Suppose $1000 (the principal) is deposited in a bank for a term of 3 years, earning interest at the rate of 8% per year compounded annually. Suppose $1000 (the principal) is deposited in a bank for a term of 3 years, earning interest at the rate of 8% per year compounded annually.

If the sales increased by $30,000 per year thereafter, find Madisons sales in the fifth year and its total sales over the first 5 years of operation.Solution Madisons yearly sales follow an arithmetic progression, with a = 200,000 and d = 30,000. Madisons yearly sales follow an arithmetic progression, with a = 200,000 and d = 30,000. The sales in the fifth year are found by using the nth term formula with n = 5. The sales in the fifth year are found by using the nth term formula with n = 5. Thus, Thus, or $320,000. a n = a + (n – 1)d a 5 = 200,000 + (5 – 1)30,000 = 320,000

Applied Example: Company Sales Madison Electric Company had sales of $200,000 in its first year of operation. Madison Electric Company had sales of $200,000 in its first year of operation. If the sales increased by $30,000 per year thereafter, find Madisons sales in the fifth year and its total sales over the first 5 years of operation. If the sales increased by $30,000 per year thereafter, find Madisons sales in the fifth year and its total sales over the first 5 years of operation.Solution Madisons total sales over the first 5 years of operation are found by using the sum of terms formula. Madisons total sales over the first 5 years of operation are found by using the sum of terms formula. Thus, Thus, or $1,300,000.

Geometric Progressions A geometric progression is a sequence of numbers in which each term after the first is obtained by the preceding term by a constant. A geometric progression is a sequence of numbers in which each term after the first is obtained by multiplying the preceding term by a constant. The constant is called the common ratio. The constant is called the common ratio. A geometric progression is completely determined if the first term a and the common ratio r are given. A geometric progression is completely determined if the first term a and the common ratio r are given.

75
nth Term of a Geometric Progression The nth term of a geometric progression with first term a and common ratio r is given by The nth term of a geometric progression with first term a and common ratio r is given by

76
Example Find the eighth term of a geometric progression whose first five terms are 162, 54, 18, 6, and 2. Find the eighth term of a geometric progression whose first five terms are 162, 54, 18, 6, and 2.Solution The common ratio is found by taking the ratio of any term other than the first to the preceding term. The common ratio is found by taking the ratio of any term other than the first to the preceding term. Taking the ratio of the fourth term to the third term, for example, gives Taking the ratio of the fourth term to the third term, for example, gives Using the nth term formula to find the eighth term gives Using the nth term formula to find the eighth term gives

77
Sum of Terms in a Geometric Progression The sum of the first n terms of a geometric progression with first term a and common ratio r is given by The sum of the first n terms of a geometric progression with first term a and common ratio r is given by

78
Example Find the sum of the first six terms of the geometric progression 3, 6, 12, 24, … Find the sum of the first six terms of the geometric progression 3, 6, 12, 24, …Solution Using the sum of terms formula Using the sum of terms formula with a = 3, r = 6/3 = 2, and n = 6, gives

Applied Example: Company Sales Michaelson Land Development Company had sales of $1 million in its first year of operation. Michaelson Land Development Company had sales of $1 million in its first year of operation. If sales increased by 10% per year thereafter, find Michaelsons sales in the fifth year and its total sales over the first 5 years of operation. If sales increased by 10% per year thereafter, find Michaelsons sales in the fifth year and its total sales over the first 5 years of operation.Solution The sales follow a geometric progression, with first term a = 1,000,000 and common ratio r = 1.1. The sales follow a geometric progression, with first term a = 1,000,000 and common ratio r = 1.1. The sales in the fifth year are thus The sales in the fifth year are thus or $1, 464,100.
