Math 160: Study Guide - Chapters 3&4

  1. Identify which type of problem (simple interest, compound interest, future value annuity, or present value annuity) is applicable. Do not attempt to answer the question, only identify the type of problem you would need to answer the question. Ten parts.
  2. One elementary row operation has been performed to a matrix. Determine what that row operation is. Two parts.
  3. Incidence Matrix (shipping / airline / network traffic). Some of the matrices have been given to you on the test, you task is to know how to interpret them. Look at part 2 of the chapter 4 project.
  4. Financial problem. I'm being purposely vague here. It could be any of the simple interest, compound interest, future value, or present value problems.
  5. Financial problem. Stock investment.
  6. Financial problem.
  7. Financial problem.
  8. Retirement problem: Find the present value needed to retire, then find the payment needed under a future value to reach that goal. Find out how much money there is after so many years. Determine what happens if an inheritance is applied. Look at the first part of the chapter 3 project.
  9. Write the solution to the system of linear equations from the augmented matrix. Five parts ... including the special cases.
  10. Multiply the matrices by hand and simplify the result. This will involve variables in the matrix so that you can't just use the calculator.
  11. Traffic Flow application problem (map of one-way streets).
