Number of years 1 2 3
Car 1 (value in dollars) 40,500 36,450 32,805
Car 2 (value in dollars) 42,000 39,000 36,000

Part A: What type of function, linear or exponential, can be used to describe the value of each of the cars after a fixed number of years? Explain your answer.

Part B: Write one function for each car to describe the value of the car f(x), in dollars, after x years.

Part C: Belinda wants to purchase a car that would have the greatest value in 13 years. Will there be any significant difference in the value of either car after 13 years? Explain your answer, and show the value of each car after 13 years.

1. Step-by-step explanation:

Part A:

car 1 => exponential function

car 2=> linear function

Part B:

car 1 => the function f(x) = 45,000 • (0.9)^x

car 2= > the function f(x) = 45,000 – (3,000)x

Part C:

after 13 years, the value of :

car 1 => 45,000 • (0.9)^13 = $11,438.40 car 2=> 45,000 – (3,000)(13) =$ 6,000

the difference is = 11,438.40 – 6,000

= \$ 5,438.40

its better to Belinda to purchase car 1.

CAR 1: EXPONENTIAL (-10%/YEAR)

CAR 2: LINEAR (-3000/YEAR)

y1 = 40,500

Y2=4200 – (3000*(t))

in 13 years

car 1 value = 11,438

car 2 value = 6000
