The value of a rare painting has increased each year since it was found at a garage sale. The value of the painting is modeled by the function f(x) = 799(1.03)x. What does the 799 represent? What will the painting be worth after 5 years? Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if x is time in years.... this growth model is just an application of the compound interest formula. so if you subsitute x = 0 that with give the initial value of the painting... remember anything to the power zero is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 2nd part of the question tells you 5 years later so x =5 make the substitution and calculate the value... \[f(5) = 799 \times (1.03)^5\] that's all that is needed
