4. Explain why the form 1 is indeterminate and cannot be evaluated by substitution. Explain how the competing functions
behave.

Choose the correct answer below.

A. If lim f(x) = 1 and lim g(x) = , then f(x)g(x) 00 as x a, which is meaningless. Therefore, direct
x a x a
substitution cannot be used.
B. If lim f(x) = 1 and lim g(x) = , then f(x)g(x) 0 as x a, so the limit does not exist. Therefore, direct
x a x a
substitution cannot be used.
C. If lim f(x) = 1 and lim g(x) = , then f(x)g(x) 1 as x a, which is meaningless. Therefore, direct
x a x a
substitution cannot be used.
D. If lim f(x) = 1 and lim g(x) = , then f(x)g(x) as x a, so the limit does not exist. Therefore, direct
x a x a
substitution cannot be used.

28. Suppose you make a deposit of $P into a savings account that earns interest at a rate of 100 r% per year.
a. Show that if interest is compounded once per year, then the balance after t years is B(t) = P(1 + r)t .

b. If interest is compounded m times per year, then the balance after t years is B(t) = P 1 + . In the limit m , the
m
compounding is said to be continuous. Show that with continuous compounding, the balance after t years is B(t) = P rt .

a. Begin by stating the compound interest formula.

B(t) = (1) where P is the principal, r is the annual rate of interest as a decimal, t is the number of years the
amount is deposited for, and n is the number of times the interest is compounded per year.

Determine the values of r (the annual interest rate written as a decimal) and n.
