help meh! Assume that the value of an automobile is inversely proportional to its age. If it is worth $3,000 when it is two years old, what is its value when it is six years old?

inverse variation?

\[Value=k \frac{1}{age}\]

as age increases the value decreases, it is inversely proportional. Older -> less valuable (<3000)

\[3000=k*\frac{1}{2}\] Now find k and find the value when age is 6

like 500?
Diyadiya
  • Diyadiya
What did you get k as?
Diyadiya
  • Diyadiya
\[3000=k*\frac{1}{2} \ (or) \ 3000= \frac{k}{2}\] Now calculate k

how ?!
Diyadiya
  • Diyadiya
\[3000=k*\frac{1}{2} \ (or) \ 3000= \frac{k}{2} \] Did you understand this?

oh wait... 6,000...I'm stupid
Diyadiya
  • Diyadiya
Yup Right :) Now you found k Lets Go back to the equation \[Value=k \frac{1}{age}\]
Diyadiya
  • Diyadiya
Substitute k=6000 and age=6 and find the value :)
