 Question 38076: Having trouble with this one Suppose you deposit \$20,000 for 3 years at a rate of 8%. If a bank compounds continuous, then the formula becomes simpler, that is A = Pe^rt where e is a constant and equals approximately 2.7183 Now suppose, instead of knowing t, we know that the bank returned to us \$25,000 with the bank compounding continuously. Using logarithms, find how long we left the money in the bank (find t). Answer: Show work in this space Click here to see answer by fractalier(2101)

 Question 38155: Please help I am stuck on this one, Most calculators have 2 different logs on them: log, which is base 10, and ln, which is base e. In computer science, digital computers are based on the binary numbering system which means that there are only 2 numbers available to the computer, 0 and 1. When a computer scientist needs a logarithm, he needs a log to base 2 which is not on any calculator. To find the log of a number to any base, we can use a conversion formula as shown here: log ^ (b)a =log a/log b Using this formula, find log ^ (2) 1000 . Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)
