**Math**

You are looking for the sum of the series? r (not d usually, that is for arithmetic) = 3 not 1/3 a = 1/27 1/27 * 3 = 1/9 1/9 * 3 = 1/3 etc then for sum of first n terms a(1-r^n)/( 1-r ) If so, yes that is for the first n terms but watch out. If you want the sum for an infinite...

**Math**

sister has 2 n yes boy has arithmetic sequence a1 = 2 d = 2 an = a1 + (n-1) d = 2 + (n-1)2 or an = 2n sum from n = 1 to n = n S = (n/2)(a1+an) = (n/2 )(2 + 2n) S = n + n^2 you got twice as many somehow

**correction**

The formulas are for the END of the year so do it for 14 years, then add that 15th deposit of 3150 (tricky wording)
*December 12, 2014*

**Math Check!!**

You get e^rt for EACH deposit for its time t 3150 [ e^14(.04) + e^13(.04) + ....e^.04] I am sorry I do not know an easy way to do that
*December 12, 2014*

**Math Check!!**

sorry, no. Your formulas are for ONE deposit at the start, not for annual deposits. Look up "amount of a sinking fund" S = 3150[ 1.04^n - 1 ] /.04

**calculous (check)**

By the way, on earth I think it travels 16, not 13 feet with no air resistance in the first second and d = 32, not 26 but perhaps your book is on another planet.
*December 12, 2014*

**calculous (check)**

in general an = a 1 + (n-1) d so I think f(n) = 13 + (n-1)26 that is how far it falls DURING second number n now I bet F(n) is the total distance fallen which should approximate d = 16 t^2 if we are talking feet and seconds and g = 32 ft/s^2 that is the sum of our sequence ...
