    A new car worth $24,000 is depreciating in value by $3,000 per year. Complete A- B. A. Write the formula that models the cars value, y, in dollars, after x years.

    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

    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.

    Maybe its 1.75x=30-0.75x? That would make the most sense to me.
