Your rich uncle is giving you $100,000 on the condition that you will spend exactly half of the remaining amount each day (or as close to half as possible). Use the equation y = 100,000(0.5)^x to find out how much you will spend on day 8. Round to the nearest cent. A. $40,000.00 B. $390.63 C. $988.76

    a graph? nope... why would you need to use one? \[remaining = y = 100 000 * 0.5 ^ 8 = 10^5 * 0.00390625\]
