Answer:

Kindly check Explanation

Step-by-step explanation:

The Arnold family :

Recursive formula ;

A1 = $1

A2 = $1 + 2($1) = $3

A3 = $3 + 2($3) = $9

An = An-1 + 2(An-1)

Where n = day of the month

Explicit formula;

y = a(b)^c

Where :

y = final amount

initial amount = a

Increment on initial amount = b

Day of the month = c

Gainey’s Family:

Recursive formula:

A1 = $10

A2 = A1 + $10 = $10 + $10 = $20

A3 = A2 + $10 = $20 + $10 =$30

An = An-1 + $10

Where n = day of the month

Explicit formula :

y = a + b(c – 1)

WHERE:

y = final amount

initial amount = a

Increment on initial amount = b

Day of the month = c
