Step 1

We have been given the selling price of a car as $18000 and that its value is decreasing by 15% every year. We need to write an expression for value of the car t years later. 

In order to write the function for value of car t years later, we can use the formula form annual growth/decay as shown below:


Step 2

Upon substituting the given values into t...
