    27000 - some sort of linear depreciation for 5 years = 12000

    soo; 12000 = 27000 - 5(dep per year)

    dep per year is then: (12000-27000)/-5

    lol kinda so in the book t= time and v = the value of the van in terms of years

    v(t) = original price - dep(time) v(t) = 27000 - dep(t) where dep is determined fromthe givein information

    27000 -12000 -------- 15000 over 5 years; is just 3000 per year

    v(t) = 27000 - 3000(t) when t=2 we get ?

    we could try to poit this to get a slope ... (0,27000) and (5,12000) 0,27000 -5,-12000 ---------- -5, 15000; slope = 15000/-5 = -3000 y-(27000) = -3000(x-0) y = -3000x + 27000
