Homework Help: Logarithm Function

Posted by Jus on Monday, May 18, 2009 at 6:27pm.

Chels is a recent business grad and has been offered entry level positions with two firms. Firm A offers a starting salary of 40,000 per year with a 2000 per year increase guaranteed each subsequent year. Firm B offers a starting salary of 38500, with a 5% increase every year after that.

a) after how many years will Renata earn the same amount at either firm?

b) what other factors might affect Chels's choice, such as opportunities for promotion? Explain how these factors may influence her decision.


So my attempt at question a) is like this:

40,000(2000)^t = A(t) for firm A
38,500(1.05)^t = A(t) for firm B

Is this wrong or right and could you provide me with the correct equation if this is wrong as well?
