This submitted Word document will be used to determine the Last Day of Attendance for government reporting purposes.
2. How much will you have in 8 years if the interest is compounded quarterly?
3. How much will you have in 15 years if the interest is compounded daily?
4. How much will you have in 12 years if the interest is compounded continuously? Use .

2. (Correctly round your answer to one decimal place, and show the intermediate steps in your work.)
3. (Insert graph here; include explanations to the other questions asked.)
4. (State the types of transformations of the natural logarithmic function, , that will result in the following function)
Problem 5: Richter Scale
1. (Complete the table below. Correctly round your answer to one decimal place, and show the intermediate steps in each of the calculations.)
E 

0.5 x 10^{6} 
0.5 x 10^{1.2} 

1.0 x 10^{8} 
1.0 x 10^{3.2} 

1.5 x 10^{10} 
1.5 x 10^{5.2} 

2.5 x 10^{12}
