Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gordon is evaluating some stocks he wants to purchase. You can see the function of the stock price below. The variable x represents days. Stock A B C Price f(x) = 25(1.08)x x f(x) 0 22.00 1 21.56 2 21.13 The initial price of this stock is $30, but it has been increasing 4% each day. Create the price function for Stock D. It should have the second lowest starting price and the second highest rate of growth. Using complete sentences, justify that your function meets these requirements. Graph the price function for Stock D. Explain the key features of the graph with complete sentences. A recent drop in sales has affected Stock D with the function g(x) = –6. Explain to Gordon how Stock D’s new price function, f(x) + g(x), will be created. Graph f(x) + g(x). Gordon wants to fully understand what kind of changes could affect the money he is investing. Using complete sentences, explain the effect of the following transformations. Graph them and f(x) on the same coordinate plane. f(x + 2) f(–x) f(x) + 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you can completely make up the equation for stock D as long as it fits those conditions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1D has the second lowest starting price

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sure, anything between 22 and 25

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.122 is the lowest, so pick anything between 22 and 25 to squeeze in D so it is the second lowest

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1stock A has a growth rate of 8% since 1.08 = 1+0.08 and 0.08 = 8%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay but how do i find b is it inbetween 4 and 8 because i know D is going to have to be the second highest

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, so r = 0.02

jim_thompson5910

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1D starts at $23 has a growth rate of 6% the function for D is \[\Large D(x) = a(1+r)^x\] \[\Large D(x) = 23(1+0.06)^x\] \[\Large D(x) = 23(1.06)^x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 3 tacked on the end means "the price drops 3 for each day"

jim_thompson5910
