Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[50000(1.07)^t=70,000(.96)^t\] solve for \(t\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets see, divide by \(50,000\) get \[(1.07)^t=1.4(.96)^t\] divide by \((.96)^t\) get \[\left(\frac{1.07}{.96}\right)^t=1.4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then use "change of base" formula to find \(t\) \[t=\frac{\ln(1.4)}{\ln(\frac{1.07}{.96})}\]
