3

Solve the problem. 13)Find the required annual interest rate, to the nearest tenth of a percent, for $1100 to grow to $1400 if interest is compounded continuously

13)

14)How long will it take money to double if it is invested at 8%, compounded continuously? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.

14)

Solve the problem. 15)The concentration of a certain drug in the bloodstream t minutes after swallowing a pill containing the drug can be approximated using the equation C(t) = 1 6 4t + 1 -1/2, where C(t) is the concentration in arbitrary units and t is in minutes. Find the rate of change of concentration with respect to time at t = 12 minutes and intrepret the results
