Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you please explain this to me? I got 5000  9000 / 6 = 4000/6 but I cant figure out my answer to that ... which is supposed to be my M because I need to use v(t)=mt+b I thought to find the value of the piece of equipment after 4 years

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0aka slope y intercept is what you start with \(9,000\) so line is \[y=\frac{2000}{3}t+90000\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it does. why did you type it in as 2000*4/3+9000 when the 3 should be under the 2000 and multiply that by 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesnt make any difference \[\frac{2000}{3}\times 4=\frac{2000\times 4}{3}\]
