**Henry**, Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 8:42pm1. V= C - rtC,

Eq: V = C(1 - rt).

V = value.

C = cost.

r = rate expresed as a decimal.

t = time in years.

2. V = 23000(1 - 0.12*2),

V = 23000 * 0.76 = 17480.

3. V = 23000(1 - 0.12t) = 2300,

23000(1 - 0.12t) = 2300,

Divide both sides by 23000:

1 - 0.12t = 0.1,

-0.12t = 0.1 - 1 = -0.90,

t = -0.90 / -0.12 = 7.5 yrs.
