Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats why we don't give answers out. you need to explain the exponential formula. Not just stated it!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from 100 = 1000e^(0.15t) u simplify it then u get down to 0.1= e^(0.15t) then u take the natural logs off both side u get ln(0.1) = 0.15t then u solve for t ln(0.1)/0.15 = t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1v(t) = 0.85(1000)t; the value will fall below $100 in about 18 yr. v(t) = 1000(0.85)t; the value will fall below $100 in about 18 yr. v(t) = 0.85(1000)t; the value will fall below $100 in about 14.2 yr. v(t) = 1000(0.85)t; the value will fall below $100 in about 14.2 yr.
