Question: Yasemin deposited into a savings account. The relationship between the time, , in years, since the account was first opened, and Yasemin's account balance, , in dollars, is modeled by the following function. B(t) = 1000 times e^0.03t How many years will it take for Yasemin's account balance to reach 1500 ? Round your answer, if necessary, to the nearest hundredth.

To find out how many years it will take for Yasemin's account balance to reach $1500, let's first set B(t) equal to 1500 and solve for t. 1500 = 1000e^(0.03t). First, divide both sides by 1000: 1.5 = e^(0.03t). Next, take the natural logarithm of both sides to isolate the exponent: ln(1.5) = 0.03t. Finally, solve for t by dividing both sides by 0.03. t = ln(1.5) / 0.03 ≈ 13.51 years. So, it would take approximately 13.51 years for Yasemin's account balance to reach $1500.
