We get 2000(1.0059375)12t = 4000, or (1.0059375)12t = 2. Taking natural ln(2) logs as in Section 6.3, we get t = 12 ln(1.0059375) ≈ 9.75. Hence, it takes approximately 9 years 9 months for the investment to double. 4. To find the average rate of change of A from the end of the fourth year to the end of the fifth year, we compute A(5)−A(4) ≈ 195.63. Similarly, the average rate of change of A from 5−4 the end of the thirty-fourth year to the end of the thirty-fifth year is A(35)−A(34) ≈ 1648.21. 35−34 This means that the value of the investment is increasing at a rate of approximately $195.63 per year between the end of the fourth and fifth years, while that rate jumps to $1648.21 per year between the end of the thirty-fourth and thirty-fifth years. So, not only is it true that the longer you wait, the more money you have, but also the longer you wait, the faster the m...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
