# Option #2 Consumer Mathematics #2Write a report that answer

Option #2: Consumer Mathematics #2Write a report that answers the following questions and meet the list of requirements that follows.Each of the problems you will be solving requires using your calculator to solve a financial equation. In order to calculate answers correctly, it is important that you follow several important rules:Follow the Order of Operations to solve complicated problems.Attempt to solve equations without writing down intermediate values. If you must write down values, keep as many digits or decimal places as you can. Better yet, use the memory locations in your calculator to store intermediate values.NEVER round intermediate calculations. Only round the final answer.Several excellent videos that describe how to solve algebraic expressions using the Order of Operations Rules are available at mathispower4u.yolasite.com. After reaching the Mathispower4u site, click on the Algebra 1 Video Library link and find the Order of Operations section in the first column. The first twelve short videos will give you an excellent overview. The next twelve may also be helpful.Questions:Simple Interest: Jerry borrowed $10,657.50 from his bank to build an attached garage and work space on his house.

Writing equations in Word can be done (a) by using the Word equation editor, (b) or you may want to simply cut/paste the equations provided for you in theConsumer Math Equations document. This document contains interest and other financial equations formatted using the Word equation editor as well as instructions for using the equation editor. Another option is (c) to write your equations by hand and paste images (in JPG or other compressed format) in the appropriate places in your paper.The conclusion should summarize your findings and what you have determined from the data and your analysis, with a broader or personal perspective in mind when applicable.As with all written assignments, provide in-text citations and a reference page.Include any tables of data or calculations, calculated values, and/or graphs associated with this problem in the body of your assignment.Document formatting, citations, and style should conform to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. In addition, the items noted in the “Good Writing Tips” section should be observed. Refer to the document (attached at the bottom of the page) Calculating Tree Height as an example of how the paper is to be formatted.
