Impact of inflation The impact of a 5% inflation rate on an $80,000-per-year pension can be severe. If P represents the purchasing power (in dollars) of an $80,000 pension, then the effect of a 5% inflation rate can be modeled by the differential equation d P d t = − 0.05 P , P ( 0 ) = 80 , 000 where t is in years. Find the particular solution to this differential equation. Find the purchasing power after 15 years.
