Problems 1 and 2$2.69$2.39 don't make it clear how many years but I will assume we subtract 20062003 = 3 years.
So the $200 has grown by $15 in the 3 year or $5/year.
Let x = number of years
200 + 0.05x = 230
Solve for x and add to year 2003.
$2.692.39 = 0.30 increase in 6 years (19951989) which is 0.05/year.
Let x = number of years.
2.39 + 0.05*x = 2.89
x = (2.892.39)/0.05 = 10 years and add that to 1989.
Problem 3 states how the years are to be counted; i.e., at the start of each year. The car is worth $11,000 at the start of 2003 and at the start of 2007 it was worth %9,600. That's 4 years so it is decreasing at the rate of $(11,0009600)/4 = $350/year.
Let x = number of years.
11,000  350x = 8,900
x = 6 years; add that to 2003 so he must have sold the car at the start of the year
2009. Check my work.
