For the week of July 22, the following day to day changes in the stock market was recorded a certain stock: -2 on Monday; +4 Tuesday; -8 Wednesday; + 2 1/2 Thursday; - 3 1/4 Friday. The stock began the week at 78 points. How many points did it finish with at the end of the week?

Result

a5 =  68.75

Solution:

a0=78 a1=a02=782=76 a2=a1+4=76+4=80 a3=a28=808=72 a4=a3+(2+12)=72+(2+12)=1492=74.5 a5=a3(3+14)=72(3+14)=2754=68.75a_{0}=78 \ \\ a_{1}=a_{0}-2=78-2=76 \ \\ a_{2}=a_{1} +4=76 +4=80 \ \\ a_{3}=a_{2}-8=80-8=72 \ \\ a_{4}=a_{3} + (2 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 } )=72 + (2 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 } )=\dfrac{ 149 }{ 2 }=74.5 \ \\ a_{5}=a_{3} -(3 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 4 } )=72 -(3 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 4 } )=\dfrac{ 275 }{ 4 }=68.75
