A. 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=24000-3000x

Okay

B. Use the formula from part A to determine after how many years the cars value will be $15,000.

Here, you would just plug in 15000 for y. 15000=24000-3000x 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.

The help me solve this button says " Here, x is the number of times in a month the bus is used."

Maybe its 1.75x=30-0.75x? That would make the most sense to me.
Destinyyyy
  • Destinyyyy
Okay.. I have new numbers now since I clicked help me solve this... 1.50x= 24x- .50x
Destinyyyy
  • Destinyyyy
= 24 not 24x

  • Destinyyyy
I got x=12
