The initial balance of a mutual fund is $1200. The fund is expected to grow in value at an annual rate of 2%. Let x represent the number of years since the fund was started. Let y represent the value of the fund x years later.


What equation models the value of the mutual fund x years after it was started?

y = $1,200 x 1.02^x

In LaTex, it would be​ \(y = 1, 200\cdot 1.02^x\)
