## Graphical

For the following exercises, use the following scenario. Javier makes monthly deposits into a savings account. He opened the account with an initial deposit of $50. Each month thereafter he increased the previous deposit amount by$20.

Graph the arithmetic sequence showing one year of Javier’s deposits.

Graph the arithmetic series showing the monthly sums of one year of Javier’s deposits.

For the following exercises, use the geometric series ${\sum _{k=1}^{\infty }\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{k}.$

Graph the first 7 partial sums of the series.

What number does ${S}_{n}$ seem to be approaching in the graph? Find the sum to explain why this makes sense.

Sample answer: The graph of ${S}_{n}$ seems to be approaching 1. This makes sense because $\sum _{k=1}^{\infty }{\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{k}$ is a defined infinite geometric series with $S=\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{1–\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}=1.$

$r=\frac{4}{5}$

To get the best loan rates available, the Riches want to save enough money to place 20% down on a $160,000 home. They plan to make monthly deposits of$125 in an investment account that offers 8.5% annual interest compounded semi-annually. Will the Riches have enough for a 20% down payment after five years of saving? How much money will they have saved?

Karl has two years to save $10,000$ to buy a used car when he graduates. To the nearest dollar, what would his monthly deposits need to be if he invests in an account offering a 4.2% annual interest rate that compounds monthly?

$400 per month ## Real-world applications Keisha devised a week-long study plan to prepare for finals. On the first day, she plans to study for $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}1\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ hour, and each successive day she will increase her study time by $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}30\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ minutes. How many hours will Keisha have studied after one week? A boulder rolled down a mountain, traveling 6 feet in the first second. Each successive second, its distance increased by 8 feet. How far did the boulder travel after 10 seconds? 420 feet A scientist places 50 cells in a petri dish. Every hour, the population increases by 1.5%. What will the cell count be after 1 day? A pendulum travels a distance of 3 feet on its first swing. On each successive swing, it travels $\frac{3}{4}$ the distance of the previous swing. What is the total distance traveled by the pendulum when it stops swinging? 12 feet Rachael deposits$1,500 into a retirement fund each year. The fund earns 8.2% annual interest, compounded monthly. If she opened her account when she was 19 years old, how much will she have by the time she is 55? How much of that amount will be interest earned?
