Each year, it loses 15% of its value.

Which function gives the value of the cart years after its purchase?

-f(t)=18,000(0.15)t

-f(t)=18,000(0.85)t

f-(t)=18,000(1.15)t

-f(t)=18,000(1.85)t

-f(t)=18,000(0.15)t

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...
