Chapter 8 Section 1 Exponential Growth Mr. Ochoa Algebra II

Vocabulary Exponential Function- Base- Asymptote- Exponential Growth Function- Growth Factor-

Examples Objective - To graph exponential functions and to model them in real-life situations.

Graph

y-intercept =1 asymptote = x-axis domain:all real numbers range:y > 0

Graph

y-intercept =0.25 asymptote = x-axis domain: range:y > 0 all real numbers

Graph

y-intercept =1 asymptote y = -1 domain: range:y > -1 all real numbers

In 2005 the average price of a car was \$15,000. If the price increases 8% a year, what will the average price be in 10 years?

You deposit \$50,000 in an investment account that pays 6% annual interest. Find the balance after 2 years if the interest is compounded quarterly ? P = 50,000, r = 0.06 n = 4, t = 2
