Explain the difference in how you would model the following situations. Person A puts $1000 in a safe in his house and puts an additional $50 per year.
Person B puts $1000 in an investment that earns 5% per year.
Why is one exponential and the other linear? How would their graphs compare? How would their values compare over time?
