IB Mathematics SL Topical Review All numbered problems are required and are to be worked ON YOUR OWN PAPER and turned in as specified on your assignment sheet. You must show your work. On questions marked “no calculator,” you much show sufficient to answer them without the use of a calculator. Diagrams are not necessarily to scale. Give any numerical answers exactly or to three significant figures unless otherwise specified in the problems. The lettered problems marked “Be Able To” are additional practice, and are not required.

Algebra, Functions, and Equations Sequences and Series 1. The Acme insurance company sells two savings plans, Plan A and Plan B. For Plan A, an investor starts with an initial deposit of $1000 and increases this by $80 each month, so that in the second month, the deposit is $1080, the next month it is $1160, and so on. For Plan B, the investor again starts with $1000 and each month deposits 6% more than the previous month. a) Write down the amount of money invested under Plan B in the second and third months. Give your answers to parts (b) and (c) correct to the nearest dollar. b) Find the amount of the 12th deposit for each Plan. c) Find the total amount of money invested during the first 12 months i) under Plan A; ii) under Plan B. 2.
