Functions and Relations

In this lesson we were able to know the difference between
function and relation where all functions are relation and
not relations are function. We used function as model so we
can understand more on these. We used to know how to get
domain and range in both graph and algebraically and finally
recalling how to evaluate functions in different operations
and used it in real life where the most important function
of mathematics.

Quiz #2
Operation of Function
In this lesson we recall how to evaluate a function in different
operatios. Meaning replacing the variable in the function x
with a value from the function's domain and computing for the
result. We review different rules for adding, subtracting,
multiplying and dividing fractions and algebraic expressions.
The important basic concept on this are adding, subtracting and
multiplying two or more functions together will result in
another function. Dividing two functions together will also
result in another function if the denominator or divisor is not
the zero function.

Quiz #3
Polynomial Function
In this lesson we were able to know the basic concept of
polynomial function. From getting its zeroes to graphing it with
its maximum and minimum turning points. We able to know the even
degree where it is either rises upward or downward and odd
degree either facing left or right. Knowing its multiplicity
will able to know its end behavior which either crosses or
touches the x-axis. Summarily we learned getting the x-intercept
and y-intercepts, extrema and end behavior of the graph.

Quiz #4
Rational Function
A rational function is any function which can be defined by a
rational fraction or two polynomials in both numerator and
denominator. To solve rational equations first eliminate
denominators by multiplying each term of the equation by the
least common denominator. Eliminating denominators may introduce
extraneous solutions. Checking the solutions of the transformed
equations with the original equation. Check for extraneous
solutions by substituting the answers back into the original
equation. In solving rational Inequalities first rewrite the
inequality as a single fraction on one side of the inequality
symbol and 0 on the other side. Then, determine over what
intervals the fraction takes on positive and negative values. We
used this lesson also in real life situations which may help
like determining the percentage, distance, speed or time.

Summative Test

In this summative all lessons are all about functions from

representing function as model, evaluating function, operation
on function, ration function, equation and inequality, one-toone function, inverse of one-to-one function, exponential
function, logarithm, and logarithm function where all of these
centers in critical thinking and representing in real life
situation where the Math is all about. From easiest, knowing
either function or relation to solving logarithmic inequalities.
All of these are important in daily tasks, decisions and life.
In this 1st quarter 1st semester, math is all about function and
ready to move in business mathematics.

Quiz #1
Illustrating Simple and Compound Interest
In this lesson we were able to know the difference between
simple and compound interest. Knowing that depositing money in a
bank is like lending money to the bank in return for which the
bank pays interest. While borrowing money from banks or lending
institutions requires payment of interest. The difference of
two, simple interest paid or received over a certain period is a
fixed percentage of the principal amount that was borrowed or
lent while compound interest accumulate on a loans principal
amount and the accumulated interest of previous periods.
Therefore, before investing your money, you should double check
with your local bank if compound interest will be used. Having
said that if you have a credit card and you owe money on it, you
will pay less interest if the credit card company uses simple

Quiz #2
Compound Interest More than Once a Year
This days many bank savings accounts pay compound interest. The
interest is added to the account at regular intervals, and the
sum becomes the new basis for computing interest. Thus, the
interest earned at a certain time interval is automatically
reinvested to yield more interest. The amount at the end of each
year is just the amount from the previous year multiplied by (1
+ r). So the 1 + r is multiplied itself each time the year ends.
In compound interest r was used to represent the interest
rate. In compound interest more than once a year the interest
rate can represent into two rates either nominal or rate per
conversion period, the symbols i(m) and j will be used
instead respectively.
If interest is often compounded more than once a year such as
semi-annually, quarterly, and daily or frequently the result of
compounding interest will get higher interest compared to
compounded once only.

Quiz #3
Finding Interest Rate and Time in Compound Interest
Equivalent Rates
I observe compounding more than once a year is very common today
and used by many businessman. Many businessman want to know the
time if he/she invests a money to bank to know how many years
will it take to come or to get a certain amount of money he
wants. In solving the time in compound interest is very
important to solve first the value of n, which refers to the
number of periods, should be a whole number. In finding the
nominal rate i(m) we should first solve the j annual rate. In
effective rate of equivalent rates as we observed on this we
knew for example that compounded quarterly cannot be matched by
compounded annually the rate would yield less interest because
there are less frequent conversion periods. In this lesson that
I knew investors are interested to find out how much time is
needed to accumulate a desired amount in investing a certain

Quiz #4
Simple Annuity
As far as I know we have to consider that with an annuity, you
can not change it once it is set up. If the annuity is set up on
your life only it will stop on your death and is therefore not
suitable for everyone. If you select a dependent they cannot
be altered later. I learned a new lesson from annuity where
annuity is used in Insurance payments, appliances, or loan
payments. Payments by installment are done periodically, and in
equal amounts that called annuity. In short a specified amount
of money that is paid during specific intervals. The amount
depends on the type of annuity and amount of funds you make
available. It is also a major part of retirement income streams,
providing dependable income. In finding future value and present
value I first solved it manually then solved it with formula
from the derivation so we can get easier and accurate values.

Summative Test: Set A

In this test, we evaluate different kind of interest from simple
interest, compound interest, compound interest more than once a
year to finding rate and time in compound interest. We were able
to answer this on 2 basic formula of simple and compound
interests, Is = PRT and F = P(1+r)t respectively. I learned
different ways on investing, depositing and growing money in a
certain time and in desired amount of money you want.
In this test I learned from my mistake where I got mistake in
number 50, finding time in compound interest more than once a
year where I got a little confused in solving it.

Summative Test: Set B

In this test, we answer the lesson from finding rate and time in
compound interest, nominal rate, total number of conversion
period and term/time. In finding all of these I used F = P
(1+r)t. I learned how to get different unknown given in formula.
Understanding different situation in different conditions.
Answering different kind of situation in real life problems
encountered by many investors and businessman. I got one mistake
I confused in difference between nominal rate and annual rate.
