**Steve**, Friday, February 22, 2013 at 11:44amP'(t) = 94000*0.03 e^0.03t = 2820 e^.03t

so, in 2000, the value will be rising at

2820 e^.3 = $3807/yr

to find the doubling interval, solve for t:

2 = e^.03t

t = ln2/.03 = 23.10 years

In 1990, the house is worth 94,000 to double it has to be worth 188,000

Putin 188,00 for P(t) then divide both sides by 94,000. That will give you

2= e^.03t

take the ln of both sides then solve for t.

Are you in calculus? If so.. for B. I would take the derivative that will give you rate of change and then put in the t which will be 10 years.
