6.2% annual interest rate, compounded annually
6.1% annual interest rate, compounded quarterly
6.0% annual interest rate, compounded continuously
for each option, write a function that gives the balance as a function of the time (T) in years.
graph all three functions in the same viewing window on your calculator, describe the viewing window.
find the balances for the three options after 25,50,75, and 100 years. is the option that yields the greatest balance after 25 years the same option that yields the greatest balance after 50,75, and 100 years? explain
