Banking – Compounded Interest
Situation: An amount (“Principal”) is deposited
into an account. An interest rate (usually growth)
is applied to the amount in the bank at specific
times throughout the year. The amount in the
bank at any time can be found using….

A total of $12,000 is invested at an interest rate of
3%. Find the balance after 4 years if the interest is
compounded quarterly.

Example: You deposit $5,000 into an account with a 6.5%
interest rate. Find the amount in the account after 10 years.

Finding Exponential Functions
Need initial value (0, …), and another
data point (x, y).
Substitute into exponential function:
f ( x)
a b
x
Solve for the growth/decay rate.
Then rewrite exp. function.
