Sketch a graph of a function and show a secant line and a tangent line to this function.

Prove: 2^n+2^n=2^(n+1)
 Complete the following:
a. Find the slope of the secant to the curve f(x) = 0.25(4)^x 2 between:
i. x = 0 and x = 1
ii. x = 0 and x = 0.5
iii. x = 0 and x = 0.1
iv. x = 0 and x = 0.01
b. Extend the result from part a) to determine the slope of the tangent to the curve at x = 0 accurate to 3 decimal places.
 For the curve y = 3(1/2)^x 1, determine the following:

 Inflation is currently causing the cost of items to increase by about 2.5% per year. In 2009 a litre of gasoline costs approximately $0.90. What will it cost to fill a 60 litre gas tank 10 years from now? Round your answer to the nearest dollar. Name at least one thing other than inflation that determines the cost to the consumer of any article (not just gasoline).
