Toss | Number of heads | Coins |

0 | 4 | |

1 | 2 | 6 |

2 | 3 | 9 |

3 | 5 | 14 |

4 | 7 | 21 |

5 | 10 | 31 |

Part A: Graph the results. DONE

Part B: Explain why the graph appeears exponential..

Part C: State an exponential equation that best fits the results. (use n to represent the number of the toss.)

Part D: State the equation that would predict the number of remaining coins if you began with N

_{0 }coins.

Part E: Perform the experiment yourself. Graph your results with a different colour.

Part F: The experimenter claims that the equation is explained by the formula for compound interest: A = P(1 + i)n. She argues that P represents the number of coins she started with, i is 0.5 since the growth rate is about 50% (since about one-half of the coins tossed come up heads) and N is the number of tosses, which is like the compounding period.

If her hypothesis is correct, create a formula that predicts the total number of coins if an unfair (weighted) coin is used that only comes up heads 1 out of every 4 times.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING! THANKS IN ADVANCED!
