A grocery store estimates that the weekly profit (in dollars) from the production and sale of x cases

of soup is given by

P(x) = -5600 + 9.2x - 0.0017x2

Ben Franklin bequeathed \$4000.00 to the city of Boston in 1790. Assuming the fund grew to

\$11 million in 200 years, find the interest rate compounded continuously that would yield this total

value.

P=Ae(kt)

11,000,000 = 4000e^(200k)

2750= e^(200k)

ln2750 = lne^(200k)

ln2750 = 200k

ln2750 / 200 = k

k = .039596781

choice A) 4%

Evaluate.

∫ (2x^2-7x) dx

to each term add 1 to the exponent, then divide by the new exponent

choice A)2/3x^3 - 7/2 x2 +C
