how do i solve this

S(1)=10000(1-e^-.5(1))

the answer for this is 3935 buy i don't know how it came up with that answer. could anyone please explain to me how
thanks in advance!

  • math -

    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.

  • math -

    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
