Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmmm.. i don't know if this is a trick question.. but i think since it is asking for the "rate of decay each month" and we're given that the value of the motorcycle decreases by 6% each YEAR.. Don't we just convert 6% per year into a percentage in terms of months? so.. 6% per year = ? % per month.. wouldn't this be your rate of decay? So i guess you divide 6% by 12
