									CALORIE PROJECT

 BY SAMANTHA SILVA
Calorie Program Description
                   A mini-survey that asks yes/no
                    questions

                   User answers questions about
                    activities that they practice during
                    a typical day

                   User answers questions about
                    junk foods that they eat in a
                    typical day

                    Based on a 2000 calorie diet of a
                    150lb person, program calculates
                    the calorie gain/loss during the
                    day.

                   Program then converts calorie
                    gain/loss into the equivalent
                    pound gain/loss
     The amount of calories lost in various
    activities (for an average 150lb. person)

Compound Interest
   Program

   By Alecia
Compound Interest
What is compound interest?
   Compound Interest is a common type of interest in
    the world today which takes into account an interest
    rate, an original principal, and the number of times
    per year that interest is compounded.
   Compound Interest differs from simple interest in that
    in simple interest, interest is only paid on the original
    principal, whereas in compound interest, interest is
    paid on the balance as a whole (original principal as
    well as past interest payments)
   Compound Interest will always return a finite balance
The Compound Interest Program
The Compound Interest Program:
   Takes values for the principal,
    rate, time, and number of times
    compounded per year from the
    user
   Calculates the balance
   Graphs the balance over time at
    that specific interest and
    compounding rate
   Calculates the balance if the
    interest were compounded
    continuously
   Calculates the time it would take
    for the principal to double
Formulas
The Compound Interest program is
   built on the principle of the
   following formulas, where P is
   the principal, A is the balance, r
   is the rate in percentage (ex.
   .07) , n is the number of times
   compounded, and t is the time:
   Compound interest formula:
    A = P (1 + r/n)^nt
   Continuous compound
    interest formula: A = Pe^rt
   Principal doubled formula
    (derived from Compound
    interest formula): t = (log 2)/
    (n * log ( 1 + (r/n)))
