Question 1. (6 points) (Thomas, §1.5 #34) Tripling your money. Determine how much time is
required for an investment to triple in value if interest is earned at an annual rate of 5.75%, compounded continuously. [Your answer may contain a logarithm; you do not need to simplify.]
We solve this by using the equation
y = Pert
where P denotes the initial investment, r denotes the annual interest rate, t denotes the number of
years elapsed since the initial investment was made, and y denotes the ﬁnal value of the investment.
In our case, we want to determine the time required for the initial investment to triple in value, so
y = 3P. We are told the annual interest rate is 5.75%, so r = .0575. We solve for t:
3P = Pe.0575t
3 = e.0575t
ln 3 = .0575t
ln 3
= t.
.0575
ln 3
Remember that the units for .0575 are “per year,” and hence t = .0575 years .
If we plug in to a calculator, we ﬁnd that this is t=19.1063007... years .

(a) If f(x) is a onetoone function and is never zero, then the function
h ( x) = 1
f ( x) is also onetoone.
We need to show that if there were two xvalues x1 and x2 such that h(x1 ) = h(x2 ), then
x1 = x2 . So we begin by assuming that there are x1 and x2 such that h(x1 ) = h(x2 ). Then

substituting, f(x1 ) = f(x2 ) and accordingly, f(x1 ) = f(x2 ). Since f is a onetoone function, this
means that x1 = x2 , and we conclude h is onetoone.

f ◦ g ( x) = g ◦ f ( x) whenever both sides of the equation are deﬁned.
Consider f(x) = x2 and g(x) = x + 1. Then
f ◦ g(x) = (x + 1)2 = x2 + 2x + 1
whereas
g ◦ f ( x) = x 2 + 1 Note f ◦ g(1) = 4, which does not equal g ◦ f(1) = 2. In particular, f ◦ g(x) = g ◦ f(x) as
functions. Homework 2 Book Problem Answers:
