I = interest P = principal r = rate t = time Simple Interest and Sequences Future Value of investment: S = P + I Ex. 1: $800 is invested for 5 years at an annual rate of 14%. How much interest is earned? What is future value?
Simple Interest (continued) Ex. 2: If you borrow $1600 for 2 years at an annual rate of 14% simple interest, how much must you pay back? How much interest is owed? What do you pay back? Ex. 3: $800 is invested at an annual rate of 14%. How much is earned in 5 months? How long does it take your investment to be worth $2200?
A list of numbers following a certain pattern a 1, a 2, a 3, a 4, …, a n, … Pattern is determined by position or by what has come before Sequences 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, …
Defined by n (its position) Find the first four terms and the 100 th term for the following: Partial Sums Adding the first n terms of a sequence, the n th partial sum:
Find the first 4 partial sums and then the n th partial sum for the sequence defined by: Example 2
Consider the following sequences: Arithmetic Sequences 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, … 81, 75, 69, 63, 57, … An arithmetic sequence is defined as: with a as the first term and d as the common difference.
