## anonymous one year ago 18. A new truck costs $32,000. The car’s value will depreciate over time, which means it will lose value. For tax purposes, depreciation is usually calculated linearly. If the truck is worth$24,500 after three years, write an explicit formula for the value of the car after n years.

First we need to calculate the percent of change by dividing:$\frac{ 32500 }{ 24500 }$@Dallen41

1.32

So, 132% as we move the decimal two times to the right.

4. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Divide 132 by 3 to get the percent of change for one year, so do:$\frac{ 132 }{ 3 }$

Appreciate it

Now, we can create the formula: $n=0.44*32500$
