This week concepts were of function problems which may include exponentials and logarithms within the functions. With these types of function we can find out information for breaking-even and profit analysis, compound interest, continuous compound interest and doubling time for an investment. Out of these concepts from this week lesson plan, currently understanding and using doubling time for an investment would be the most important.

In this world we live in today, the economy has taken a huge down turn due to major banks making their own share of poor investments. With this down turn in the global economy, many people had their Saving Accounts, 401Ks, and Pensions nearly wiped out. All these may be different types of investments we use to help pay for retirement, but they are essential to being able to retire at an early enough age. Otherwise a person would only have to look forward to working during their own golden years instead of taking it easy.

With the concept of doubling time for an investment, we can with some calculation figure out how long it would take for a certain sum of money, known as the principal, would take to double its value in a certain given time period at a certain given fix interest rate all at a certain interval. This is done with the equation A=P( 1+r/m)^mt. With this equation, to figure out t which is time for the principal to double, we can sub in 2P for A since the other known value are r the interest rate and m equals 1. Once we solve the equation for t we find the amount of time needed to double the investment made.

With the concept of this function, doubling time for an investment in use, a person can now safely and accurately predict the amount of time for growth in their investments. Within this global economic down turn, knowing and planning a financially secure future has become important for anyone in the general society. If more people were able to use this concept of doubling time for an investment, the...

Dear John,
Hi it’s Andy here,
I am writing to you today following our recent conversation, with regards to you becoming a Support Worker.
If you do decide to work within the industry you will have a duty of care to the clients in your care, and this is a legal requirement.
All companies have to follow these policies and procedures ,as this ensures that you have your clients best interests at heart.
These procedures are put in place to ensure that the clients are not hurt in any way,or treated unfairly.This could include the client been discriminated against, neglected or taken advantage of in a number of ways.
You must always ensure that the care you give your client, is given in a safe manor, and according to National standards.
You should always treat your client as an individual, with individual needs. And their privacy should be respected at all...

Question 2
Parameters are known, constant values that are usually coefficients of variables in equations.
Question 3
Probabilistic techniques assume that no uncertainty exists in model parameters.

In general, an increase in price increases the break even point if all costs are held constant.
Question 5
P(A | B) is the probability of event A, if we already know that event B has occurred.

...Mass
Index

MAT 221: Introduction to Algebra
Date : April 7, 2013
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is an indicator to help people to determine if they might have a longer life span than average, are probably not overweight, are probably overweight, or are obese. The intervals for each are from 17 to 22, 23 to 24.999, 25 to 29.9, and over 30 respectively. Notice that it is between 17 and 22. That is not inclusive but rather a compound inequality statement which is 17 < BMI < 22. Moreover, over 30 is an inequality statement with a positive infinity which is any BMI that is greater than 30, or BMI > 30 which will be written as (30, +∞). Anyway, my BMI will be calculated, and I will explain how I arrived at the results. Sometimes, a person’s BMI can be misleading, so reasons will be provided about why. Finally, there is an evaluation of the regions outside of the “probably not overweight” range by using the set and interval notations along with a simple graph of the regions.
Now, I am five feet and eleven inches tall, and I weigh 180 pounds. Remember that one foot is equivalent to twelve inches. Since I am five feet tall, we will multiply five with twelve to get sixty. Now, I am an additional eleven inches taller than five feet, that is, sixty inches. Hence, we will add eleven inches to sixty inches to make that seventy one inches. The formula is:
BMI = (703W)/(H^2) where BMI is the Body Mass...

...119. Explain how to solve an exponential equation when both sides can be written as a power of the same base.
When an exponential equation has both sides of the equation as the same base one needs to rewrite the equation in the form of bM=bN. For instance, 24x-3=8. To make this the same base we need to make 8 a base of two by writing it as 2^3. Then we have 24x-3=23. Then we get rid of the base and get 4x-3=3. Finally we solve for x.
4x-3=3
4x=6
x=23
120. Explain how to solve an exponential equation when both sides cannot be written as a power of the same base. Use 3x = 140 in your explanation.
To solve this equation one needs to use a natural logarithm or ln.
First take the ln of both sides, ln 3x= ln 140
Then using bx= x ln b, move the variable to the front, x ln 3 = ln 140
Solve for x, x= ln3ln140= 1.0986122887/4.9416424226 = 0.22231723680404.
121. Explain the differences between solving log31x - 12 = 4 and log31x - 12 = log3 4.
When solving log31x - 12 = 4 one needs to write it in the form of bc=M. To do this we do the following; logbM=c means bc=M.
1) log31x - 12 = 4
2) 34=x-12
3) 81=x-12
4) x=93
In the case of log31x - 12 = log3 4, since the log is the same on both sides of the equation the will be omitted. The new equation would be; 1x-12=4. Then solve as normal. Add 12 to 4 to get 16, leaving 1x, which is just x and you have x=16.

For the example of a ball being thrown up into the sky and then landing on the ground, we can model a quadratic equation to show the path of the projectile at various points in time (projectile motion). That is to say, each point plotted on the graph (parabola) will be a measurement to this effect:
Suppose a ball is thrown into the sky at a velocity of 64ft/sec from an initial height of 100ft. We would set the quadratic equation as (s)0=-gt^2+v0t+h0 and substitue values for gravity, velocity, and initial height to equal 0=-16t^2+64t+100. If we want to find out after how many seconds the ball will land, we can leave the equation set to zero and solve for t, using the quadratic formula. This will give us a solutions for t = SQRT(41)/2 (approximately 3.2 seconds) or t = -SQRT(41)/2 (approximately -3.2 seconds). Because we are only interested in positive values and negative values would not make any sense in this application, the ball will land after 3.2 seconds have passed, meaning that t = +3.2 seconds when the postion is at 0 or ground level; Position (3.2,0) on the Cartesian plane.
Also, knowing how to quickly calculate the vertex of such models as these comes in handy. It can give us the projectile’s (ball’s) maximum height value in this equation before it begins to descend. This is...

...this podcast are experts in the field that they are talking about shows that there is validity in this podcast. Even though this podcast was recorded in 2008 it still has validity when you compare the information provided in it to research that has been conduct today.
As I stated before it is easy to access any information that you want as long as you have access to the internet. It is amazing that you can find studies of things that was conducted in other countries all because it was available on the internet. For example the University in Hong Kong did a research on how undergraduate students conduct research for their assignments. They conducted their research on eleven students. The study of the paper was based on some data collected through process logs and interviews with a small group of English as a second language students writing academic assignments at an English-medium university in Hong Kong (Li, 2012). Even though we are culturally different we all experience some of the same things. For example with this study that was conducted at a University in Hong Kong the students conduct research the same way that we do as in using the internet. There are also other countries schools.
There are many factors that anyone should consider when they are deciding on whether to use a particular internet source for the information they are researching. The factors that I look for are credibility, currency, and objectivity. When looking for...
