A person places $230 in an investment account earning an annual rate of 6.8%, compounded continuousl

A person places $230 in an investment account earning an annual rate of 6.8%, compounded continuously. Using the formula V = Pe^{rt}V=Pe^rt, where V is the value of the account in t years, P is the principal initially invested, e is the base of a natural logarithm, and r is the rate of interest, determine the amount of money, to the nearest cent, in the account after 20 years
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/simpint.php?av=&p=230&int=6.8&t=20&pl=Continuous+Interest']continuous compounding calculator[/URL], we get:
V = [B]896.12[/B]

A person places $96300 in an investment account earning an annual rate of 2.8%, compounded continuou

A person places $96300 in an investment account earning an annual rate of 2.8%, compounded continuously. Using the formula V=PertV = Pe^{rt} V=Pe rt , where V is the value of the account in t years, P is the principal initially invested, e is the base of a natural logarithm, and r is the rate of interest, determine the amount of money, to the nearest cent, in the account after 7 years.
Substituting our given numbers in where P = 96,300, r = 0.028, and t = 7, we get:
V = 96,300 * e^(0.028 * 7)
V = 96,300 * e^0.196
V = 96,300 * 1.21652690533
V = [B]$117,151.54[/B]

A super deadly strain of bacteria is causing the zombie population to double every day. Currently, t

A super deadly strain of bacteria is causing the zombie population to double every day. Currently, there are 25 zombies. After how many days will there be over 25,000 zombies?
We set up our exponential function where n is the number of days after today:
Z(n) = 25 * 2^n
We want to know n where Z(n) = 25,000.
25 * 2^n = 25,000
Divide each side of the equation by 25, to isolate 2^n:
25 * 2^n / 25 = 25,000 / 25
The 25's cancel on the left side, so we have:
2^n = 1,000
Take the natural log of each side to isolate n:
Ln(2^n) = Ln(1000)
There exists a logarithmic identity which states: Ln(a^n) = n * Ln(a). In this case, a = 2, so we have:
n * Ln(2) = Ln(1,000)

Determine whether the statement is true or false. If 0 < a < b, then Ln a < Ln b

Determine whether the statement is true or false. If 0 < a < b, then Ln a < Ln b
We have a logarithmic property that states:
ln(a) - ln(b) = ln (a / b)
We're given a < b, so (a / b) < 1
Therefore:
ln (a / b) < 0
And since ln(a) - ln(b) = ln (a / b)
Then Ln(a) - Ln(b) < 0
So this is [B]TRUE[/B]

Farmer Yumi has too many plants in her garden. If she starts out with 150 plants and is losing them

Farmer Yumi has too many plants in her garden. If she starts out with 150 plants and is losing them at a rate of 4% each day, how long will it take for her to have 20 plants left? Round UP to the nearest day.
We set up the function P(d) where d is the number of days sine she started losing plants:
P(d) = Initial plants * (1 - Loss percent / 100)^d
Plugging in our numbers, we get:
20 = 150 * (1 - 4/100)^d
20 = 150 * (1 - 0.04)^d
Read left to right so it's easier to read:
150 * 0.96^d = 20
Divide each side by 150, and we get:
0.96^d = 0.13333333333
To solve this logarithmic equation for d, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/natlog.php?num=0.96%5Ed%3D0.13333333333&pl=Calculate']type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
d = 49.35
The problem tells us to round up, so we round up to [B]50 days[/B]

if Logb(5)=3.56 and logb(8)=4.61 then what is logb(40)

if Logb(5)=3.56 and logb(8)=4.61 then what is logb(40)
There exists a logarithmic identity which says log(xy) = log(x) + log(y).
Since the two logs above have the same base b, we have:
x = 5 and y = 8. So we have:
logb(40) = logb(5) + logb(8)
logb(40) = 3.56 + 4.61
logb(40) = [B]8.17[/B]

log5 = 0.699, log2 = 0.301. Use these values to evaluate log40

log5 = 0.699, log2 = 0.301. Use these values to evaluate log40.
One of the logarithmic identities is: log(ab) = log(a) + log(b). Using the numbers 2 and 5, we somehow need to get to 40.
[URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/factoriz.php?num=40&pl=Show+Factorization']List factors of 40[/URL].
On the link above, take a look at the bottom where it says prime factorization. We have:
40 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5
Using our logarithmic identity, we have:
log40 = log(2 x 2 x 2 x 5)
Rewriting this using our identity, we have:
log40 = log2 + log2 + log2 + log5
log40 = 0.301 + 0.301 + 0.301 + 0.699
log40 = [B]1.602[/B]
