Please help me! (NO ANSWERS PLEASE) :)
Bella plans to put $200 into a savings account. She can place her money into an account represented by p(x) = 3x + 200, or into another account represented by n(x) = 200(1.04)x. Which account has the highest value in 4 years? Which account has the highest in 15 years?

An easier way to get someone to look at it for you is that when you post the question, type in big letters: "MEDAL WILL BE AWARDED" or "WILL MEDAL" or something like that. I know it works with me almost always. Why don't you try reposting the question?

Trust me, It Really Helps

\[p(x) = 3x + 200\\p(4)=3\times 4+200\]
\[n(x) = 200(1.04)^x\\
n(4)=200\times (1.04)^4\] compare and contrast as the teachers say

wait what? @satellite73

Try asking your question on the Geometry subject instead

- anonymous

plug in the numbers, see what you get

- anonymous

Or that...

@Tide_Poole can you help me understand (I failed algebra 1 twice, I am taking it over, and stil confused)

@satellite73 `

He didn't understand what you told him last time

- anonymous

I did not :( xD I am so slow to catch on, you guys might as well try to explain this to a blind turtle.

- anonymous

ok lets go slow

- anonymous

I totally understand the feeling

- anonymous

you have two functions, right?
one is
\[p(x) = 3x + 200,\]

- anonymous

the other is
\[ n(x) = 200(1.04)^x\]

- anonymous

you are asked "Which account has the highest value in 4 years? "

- anonymous

to find the answer, where you see an \(x\) replace it by a \(4\)
the first one to compute is
\[p(4)=3\times 4+200\] what is that number?

- anonymous

did i lose you there?

- anonymous

I'm not sure. He pops in and out all the time

- anonymous

oh

Lets try calling him

sorry if that was counted as mass- tagging :(

Look at what satellite73 said. Just plug the numbers into both functions and whatever gives you the largest number is the bank account to go with

- anonymous

I did that and concluded that C would be the answer? @Australopithecus

- Australopithecus

that is correct.
