Application Problems. (5 pts each) Please translate each of the application problems into mathematical equations and solve using any method of your choice. 13. Find the length of the time for $10,000 to double when it is invested at 6% annual interest rate, compounded continuously. Use the formula A = Pe rt . 14. If you choose to use matrices using a graphing calculator, please write the augmented matrix that you will enter on your calculator to solve the problem. An electrician, a carpenter, and a plumber are hired to work on a house. The electrician earns $30 per hour, the carpenter $28.50 per hour, and the plumber $34 per hour. The first day on the job, they worked a total of 21.5 hours and earned a total of $673.00. If the plumber worked 2 more hours than the carpenter did, how many hours did each work? IV. Graphing (4 pts each).
