Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The value of the car after t years is \[V(t)=21,000  3000t\] In other words, the car starts off being worth $21,000 and it loses $3,000 in value every year. If you want to know how many years it takes for the car to reach $12,000, then solve: \[12000 = 21,000  3000t\] You can do this in your head, because everything is divisible by 1,000. :) \[12 = 21  3t\] Now just solve for t. :) Hope this helps!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05, 15, and 11 years are NOT the answers. If you subsitute those into the original equation given, they do not give $12,000 as the price of the car.
