The equation, y = 10(1.0605)x, represents the winning prize money, in thousands, for first place in the Indianapolis 500 auto race. x represents the number of years after 1911, the first year. What is the value for 1911 (x = 0)? This is the prize money, in thousands. For instance, if you got 23, this represents $23,000. A. $10,605 B. $10,000 C. $0 Wouldnt the correct answer be A?

I have to assume that you mean \[y = 10(1.0605)^x\]
anonymous

Yes sorry about that.

If that is correct then let me ask you.. What is \(5^1\)

What is \(5^0\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohhhhh then it would be nothing

No

What is \(5^2\)

25

and \(5^3\)

125

Ok, so lets look at it going backward: \[5^3 = 125\] \[5^2 = 25 = \frac{125}{5}\] \[5^1 = 5 = \frac{25}{5}\] \[5^0 =\ ? = \frac{5}{5}\]

So what is \(5^0\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then it would be... i think 1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right

nicely done!

And this is the case for any number: \[b^0 = \frac{b}{b} = 1, \forall b \ne 0\]

So if that's the case let's go back to your original problem
anonymous
  • anonymous
What is \(10(1.0605)^0\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright. so then it would be 10,00
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct? (:
anonymous
  • anonymous
Exactly.
anonymous

Nice work.
