8-6 Compound Interest and Exponential Growth

2
Exponential Growth An exponential model is y=C(a) x, if a>1 the change is exponential growth. If a<1 it is exponential decay. Compound Interest is an example of an exponential growth model. An initial amount, C, is multiplied by a growth factor (1+r) each time period. At each stage, the amount increases by r percent (decimal form).

3
Compound Interest A=P(1+r) t P is the principal r is the rate as a decimal t is time in years

4
Suppose $700 is deposited in an account that pays 7.5% annual interest compounded yearly. What is the balance after 8 years?

5
