PLEASE HELP ME DON'T GET THE QUESTION ILL GIVE MEDAL AND FAN IF YOU HELP PLEASE NEED HELP
Victoria has $200 of her birthday gift money saved at home, and the amount is modeled by the function h(x) = 200. She reads about a bank that has savings accounts that accrue interest according to the function s(x) = (1.05)x − 1. After combining the two functions, the new function is g(x) = 200(1.05)x − 1. Using complete sentences, explain what this new function means.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If the money sits at home, it just stays $200

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But if you put it in an account that accrues interest, the amount of money you have will go up using the interest function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It also depends on how much money you are drawing interest on, which is where the $200 comes into play (called the principle).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what the new function mean is that the 200 dollars that was originally at your home is going to be put in a the interest function at a bank . what it is going to happen to your 200 dollar is that the interest function is are going to put you 200 dollar up in interest since your putting the 200 dollar into a the interest function. is this right @JoannaBlackwelder ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hm, the question asks to explain what the new function means. I think you are accurately explaining what is happening, but not answering the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the difference would be (1.05)^ x1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um is the difference is (1.05)^x1 @JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, that is a difference, but I was meaning to ask if you understand the difference between explaining what is happening in the problem and answering the question they asked.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so wait the new function is going to be the interest right @JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, it is the interest based on the amount of money put into the bank (principle)
