I WILL MEDAL/FAN 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?

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

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

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

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

    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?

    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
