A checking account is opened and \$600 is withdrawn every month. Assume this account earns no interest. a) After two months the value of the account is \$8,400. Let t represent the number of months elapsed since the account was opened, and write a linear function V(t) b mt = + = + that computes the value of the account from the time it was opened until the time it becomes depleted. a)______________________ b) Complete the table and draw a relevant graph for this function. t V 0 2 8,400 5 10 15 0 c) Let t* represent the number you entered above in the last row, first column. Explain what the statement V(t*) 0 = means in the context of this situation. d) What are the appropriate units for the slope of your linear equation? (no numbers, just units) d)________________________ e) Use set-builder notation to describe the relevant domain and range of this function. Domain:__________________ Range:____________________

Let P represent this population as a function of time t . a) Draw a graph that could represent the general shape of the graph of P. The graph is (circle one word from each line): increasing decreasing constant concave up concave down linear b) If this growth pattern is expected to continue for at least 5 more years, and the average rate of change of P for the 20
