This is my 4th math class that I have taken in college. I have either failed, or gotten a lower grade than would transfer over to the schools i transferred too. I failed my summer math class, and just had to spend $1500 to take this online class, which is the same as the summer class that I failed. I am a Graphic Design major and was supposed to graduate in May but because of this math class, I can't graduate. I just want to be done with school and math. I hate it so much and will never understand it as you can see. The following are the problems I need help with. Any input would be great. If I could just get them solved that would be even more awesome, because I'm done trying to understand.
36. Suppose that you save for retirement by contributing the same amount each month from your 23rd birthday until your 65th birthday, in an account that pays a steady 4% annual interest compounded monthly.
a) How much will be in your fun at age 65 if you save $100 a month?
b) How much will be in your fund if you get a steady return of 7.5% compounded monthly?
c) How much will be in your fund if you get a steady return of 10% compounded monthly? (This is comparable to the average annual return on the New York Stock Exchange from 1950-2000)
39. Many young people do not start saving right away for retirement, although by the time that they do, they may be earning more and thus be able to afford to save more each month. How much will be in your fund at age 65 if you don’t start saving until age 35 and at that age, start saving $100 per month in an account paying a steady 6% annual interest compounded monthly?
54. A 1963 Chevy Bel Air, a classic car today, cost $2400 new in mid-1963. How much would that be in 2012 dollars?
58. If inflation had been 3% each year from 2002 – 2012, what would the CPI have been in 2012?
Calculate the CPI for this year and for 5 years from now. Project the price 5 years from now of a gallon of gas
4) Dollhouses and their furnishings are usually built to a scale of exactly 1in to 1ft, meaning that an item 1ft long in a real house is 1in. long in a dollhouse.
a) What is the linear scaling factor for a dollhouse?
b) If a dollhouse were made of the same materials as a real house, how would their weights compare?
10) Criticize the following statement and write a correct version.
“The war funding bill…passed this week, but with three times fewer Democrats voting for it than did the last year.”
