A new Toyota costs $19000. The car's value depreciates linearly to 8200 in 3 years time. Write a formula which expresses its value, V, in terms of its age, t, in years.
V(t) = 19,000 - 8200t Where 19,000 is your original worth of the car. t is the years that have passed by. So for instance, 2 years go by, and then the car's value drops accordingly.
do i have to plug in 3 for t?
V=19000-2733.3t It said it depreciated 8200 dollars every 3 years, not one.
so the answer is 3t(16267) ?
No, that's not a formula. I gave you the answer.
