cheyanne plans to put $150 into a savings account. she can place her money into an account represented by f(x)=5x+150, or into another account represented by g(x)=150(1.03)^x. which account has the highest value in 3 years? which account has the highest value in 10 years?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0these are the answer choices: 1. f(x) has the highest value in 3 years; g(x) has the highest value in 10 years 2. g(x) has the highest value in 3 years; f(x) has the highest value in 10 years 3. f(x) has the highest value in 3 years; f(x) has the highest value in 10 years 4.g(x) has the highest value in 3 years; g(x) has the highest value in 10 years

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x is the number of years, right? so first, find f(x) when x = 3 and g(x) when x = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For 3 years f(x)=5x+150=165 for the first one g(x)=150(1.03)^3=163.90

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, f(x) is greater for 3 years now calculate f(x) and g(x) when x = 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah vocaloid would tell you to do f(x)=5(10)+150=200 g(x)=150(1.03)^10=201.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because i got 200 for f(x) and 201 for g(x)
