A Comparison of Two Types of Bank Investments
Nillsen, Rodney
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v31 n1 p5-18 2017
In this paper, an investment problem is investigated in terms of elementary algebra, recurrence relations, functions, and calculus at high school level. The problem comes down to understanding the behaviour of a function associated with the problem and, in particular, to finding the zero of the function. A wider purpose is not only to formulate the problem mathematically and to make necessary calculations, but to think on a wider front, and to seek insight and mathematical modes of thinking in relation to general investment strategy.
