A boat costs $92,000 and depreciates in value by 15% per year. How much will the boat be worth after 10 years?
Is the answer the first one? Could somebody write down the steps for me please? Thanks
each year the boat is worth .85 as much as it was
92000*.85^10 = 18112.45
You are correct. I assume you were guessing between A and C, since the other two are clearly unreasonable.
