Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[A(t)=31,959(1+\frac{ 4.39 }{ 12 })^{12t}\] \[31,595=(1.37)^{12t}\] \[31,959=(43.72)^{t}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5If you put a ln in front of both sides then the t will come down. So you would have ln(31959)=tln(43.72) an then can divide each side by ln(43.72)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what would it be after you divide by ln(43.72)? sorry i dont have a scientific or graphing calc with me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5After the division you would find that t= 2.74556, I don't know how many significant digits you would want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does it mean when it says "you want figure out how many months it will be until your principal is paid down to $10,000.00."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does that mean you put 10,000 in the P spot or subtract your cars price until you get 10,000?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Just to clarify the initial price of the car is 31959? If so then you would put the 10,000 where the A(t) is and solve for time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5That's what I would have done.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I'm sorry something is wrong as it comes out as a negative number so something is off and I am trying figure out what happened! Sorry!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and it said its supposed to be a negative so you didnt mess up!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I should also note that when you ln the one side you have to ln the other as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.531595 divided by ln62.59 is 7637.9 ln31595 divided by ln62.59 is 2.50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I always just assume that when I see a negative value I am wrong as I am a chemistry major and when things are negative it normally means I did something really wrong! ln0.317 divided by ln43.72 equals 0.304
