2n 3 - 2 1. Write the first three terms of the sequence defined explicitly as t n = . [3] n +1

2. Using first and/or second differences, determine an explicit formula for the following sequence of terms: 5, 11, 21, 35, 53, « Use your explicit formula to find the 13th term. [6]

3. Determine the kind of function (discrete or continuous) represented by each situation: a) The charge in a capacitor (an electronic device capable of storing electrical energy) decreases by 0.25%
h every 6 hours. The charge is modelled by the function C(h) = 100(0.9975) 6 , where C is the level of

charge as a percent. Find the percentage of charge remaining after 25 days to 1 decimal place accuracy. [3]

b) The population of a city grows annually at a rate of 3.5%. The population can be modelled by the equation N(t) = 75 260(1.035) t where t is the time in years from the base year 2001. What will be the population of the town in the year 2019? [3]

Determine a recursion formula for the sequence -2.. 26. .. « Note: there may be more than one way of doing this.13. [2] 6. ..

a taxi fare includes an initial fixed charge. can be expressed by the recursion formula t 1 = 3. Determine the number of ways to spell the word MATHROCKS. in dollars. [2. plus another charge based on each tenth of a kilometre travelled.9. t n = t n . A] d) Calculate the fare for a 4.2. In one city. A] 10. A] a) What is the initial fixed charge? [1.1 + 0. The possible fares charged. M AA TTT HHHH RRRRR OOOOOO CCCCCCC KKKKKKKK SSSSSSSSS . A] c) Write the general term to model the possible taxi fares in this city for each tenth of a kilometre travelled. in this city. [2. A] b) What is the charge per tenth of a kilometre travelled? [2.5 km trip. [1.
