Part 1

21. Joelle has a credit card that has a 19.2% annual interest rate computations. compounded monthly. She owes a total balance of B dollars after m months. Assuming she makes no payments on her account, the table below illustrates the balance she owes after m months.

Over which interval of time is her average rate of change for the balance on her credit card account the greatest?

(4) month 60 to month 73
Look at the image below. Find the average rate of change by calculation (y1 - y2) / (x1 - x2).

22. Which graph represents a cosine function with no horizontal shift, an amplitude of 2, and a period of 2/3 π ?

(3) See below
Choices (2) and (4) are out because they start at 0 (sine graphs). Graph (1) shows a function with a period of 2/9 π, as it repeats three 3 in the space of 2/3 π. Choice (3) shows a function that repeats 3 times in the space of 2π, so it has a period of 2/3π.
