You are apparently supposed to compute S(1), when x = 1 and

S(x) = 10,000*[1 - e^(-0.5x)]

This is a straightforward calculation.

e^-0.5 = 0.6065

Subtract that from 1.

x=1

S(x)=S(1)=e^(-0.5x)=e^(-0.5*1)=e^(-0.5)=

=0.606530659712633423603799535

1-0.606530659712633423603799535=

0.393469340287366576396200465

10000*0,393469340287366576396200465=

3934.69340287366576396200465
