Ruth bought a piece of farm machinery valued at $50, 000. Over a period of 10 years, the machinery lost value at a constant rate. The graph below models this loss of value. Which statement most closely matches this relationship?

    I know the answer it is Each year, the machinery loses a value of $4, 500 I just need an explanation on why it is 4,500

    in science, its important to know the process almost more than the answer. when you, "which statements", it sounds like a multiple choice question. is it?

    Wait, I think I understand you slightly. You already googled the answer, but wanna know how to get there. Awesome. Alright, important thing first is to determine the formula for this situation.

    Its a linear line, going down. Which means it has slope.

    An equation for slope is y=mx+b.

    Substitute any 2 lines into y=mx+b, where (x,y) is a point on the line. Don't worry lots of children do it. I'm jsut glad you want to figure out the real process like real scientists actually do.

    I asked my teacher if it was the right answer and he said yes

    Based on both visual perception and visually used data and its calculation, I got a difference answer. Where'd your teacher get his degree?
