    Answer:

    • After 17 years and 3 months

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given function:

    • f(x)=18000(0.88)^x

    We are looking for the value of x at f(x) < 2000

    Solve the equation:

    • 2000 = 18000(0.88)^x
    • (0.88)^x = 2000/18000
    • (0.88)^x = 0.1111
    • log (0.88)^x = log 0.1111
    • x = log 0.1111 / log 0.88
    • x = 17.18

    After 17 years and 3 months the car value drops below $2,000
