Problem 44 Easy Difficulty

A certain small country has 10 billion dollars in paper currency in circulation, and each day 50 million dollars comes into the country's banks. The government decides to introduce new currency by having the banks replace old bills with new ones whenever old currency comes into the banks. Let $ x = x(t) $ denote the amount of new currency in circulation at time $ t, $ with $ x(0) = 0. $
(a) Formulate a mathematical model in the form of an initial-value problem that represents the "flow" of the new currency into circulation.
(b) Solve the initial-value problem found in part (a).
(c) How long will it take for the new bills to account for $ 90% $ of the currency in circulation?


a) $\frac{d x}{d t}=50 \times 10^{6}-\frac{x}{200}$
b) $x=10^{10} \cdot\left(1-e^{-t / 200}\right)$
c) 461 days

that is light dar 50 1,000,000 that is about 50 million bay and dob 10 billion bay the Therefore, in the percent age we're gonna see in the circulation and and day 60 is B minus X t or B in 200 that people still one minus x t will be defended. Their food, the amount. Uh oh, Lord, I got to see that will come to ban this day. You may even as and do one minus and still would be. Therefore we have for them and they amount you gonna see on the big D Plus people do. Exhausted Blessed one amount off new currency. What really blazed the old currency on the the before is your do except 50 plus one minus six ft. No, we have, except 50 plus one. Maraniss. Six off t four. Do you last One dynasty that wants to and my list It's dealing with me now being defined. Limit their base. Given us the minutes it is tending to Zito. X off deep. Last stage minus x d over d plus age minus t, but still dance DT Oh, we have digs for BD do minus. It's d. We're gonna be no further and release us. Deers were really equal. Duh. 50 1,000,000 my daughter. 50 1,000,000 ste. Or 10 1,000,000,000. Duh. So we have further digs over TG after simplification as 15 then by six minus six. This is the stuff about the problem. Now we have back B well meant to find that is decks. Our media is equal to five. That is 15 to 200 injured. Antibiotics. My ass is over 200 or gets 200. Dennis, What is equal to then doesn't into the bar six minus x. Are these in division 200 for? Did about minus six. Thanks for finding a shot on D. D. So their bodies minus 200? No. Stated about 10 minus six. That equals two deep. Classy. It is a land more tend to the Parton minus six people to do you one minus 200 last see over minus. So it did tend to about 10 minus six people with the power dynasty of 1 200 into the power. See a bomb. 200 minus 200. There. So we have this as state About 10. Minus six equals C two, you know, about minus Dearborn toe. For that we have the X. It will do. Tell about 10 class Say to you the power minus t upon 200. Therefore, we have a STD as about 10 plus C to the power My Nestea, a born 200 on the tuxedo will do Tended about 10 plus C two and excuse given a zero for me Have a seat people mime instead of the power. Therefore for me X he wants to did about 10 in one minus eat about our dynasty are gone So this is the sort of part b of the problem. Now we have the back see off the problem Well, we will find for the notice 9 10 billion oneto one asking about my steel 1 200 So it is a 0.9 equals one minus about my honesty Upon 200 It is you the bottom line Este upon 200 equals 0.1 R t two minus 200 Elena Or do you want one that is given As for 61 of these So these people forces 200. It is the answer to the given problem
