Graphing Compound Interest

I know that for a fixed rate, a fixed principal amount, and a fixed compounding cycle, the return is an exponential function of time. Using the formula, A=P(1+r/n)^m, let r = 10%, P = 1, and n = 1 and give the coordinates (t, A) for the points where t = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. Can you show me how you got the coordinates and how to graph

Value of x using a graph

An open-top box is to be constructed from a 6 by 8 foot rectangular cardboard by cutting out equal squares at each corner and the folding up the flaps. Let x denote the length of each side of the square to be cut out. When this is graphed for the function V that represents the volume of x, on the graph what is the function of

Find the function for volume of an open-top box.

If I have an open-top box that is to be constructed from a 6 by 8 foot rectangular cardboard by cutting out equal squares at each corner and the folding up the flaps. Let x denote the length of each side of the square to be cut out. How do I find the function V that represents the volume of the box in terms of x? How do you

Statistical Information

You have been invited to present statistical information at a conference. To prepare, you must perform the following tasks: The following data was retrieved from www.cdc.gov. It represents the number of deaths in the United States due to heart Disease and cancer in each of the years; 1985, 1990, 1995, and 2002.

Graphing functions

How do I graph the functions y=x and y=the sq root of x on the same graph (by plotting points if necessary). How would I show the points of intersection of these two graphs? How would the graph relate to solving all the values of x for the equation x-the sq root of x=0?

Functions

Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 64 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t2 + v0t + s0 16 represents 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second2). v0 is the initial veloci

Riemann Zeta Function

Is is shown that the Riemann Zeta function for positive even integer k which is the sum from 1 to infinity of 1 / n^k = 2^(k-1) abs(B_k) pi^k / k! See attached for clarification.

Prove Composition of Functions are Associative

Prove, from the definition of function (using ordered pairs), that composition of functions is associative. (i.e. prove that f * (g*h) = (f* g) *h) for suitable functions f, g, h I would like to know how to use ordered pairs to proof the associative of composited functions.

Properties of additive functions; Bounded; Continuous; Measurable

Let f : R --> R be an additive function i.e. f(x+y) = f(x) + f(y) for all x,y in R. 1. If f is bounded at a point, then f is continuous at that point. 2. If f is measurable, then f is linear i.e. f(x) = cx for some c in R. I have already proved that f is continuous if and only if f is linear, and I have proven that if f i
