Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2A. If the car's value declines by 3000/year, then this can be represented by 3000x, and because the car originally cost 24000, the equation would be y=240003000x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Here, you would just plug in 15000 for y. 15000=240003000x There are a number of ways you can go about solving this, but in the end x has to be isolated on one side of the equation. Personally, I like to subtract and then divide. First, I would subtract 24000 from both sides 9000=3000x And then I divide by 3000. 3=x So three years is your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Maybe its 1.75x=300.75x? That would make the most sense to me.
