Because of a recession, the value of a new house depreciated 10% each year for three years in a row. Then, for the next three years, the value of the house increased 10% each year. Did the value of the house increase, decrease, or remain the same after 6 years? How can I explain this

  1. Let's look at $1000

    after 3 years depreciation of 10%
    amount = 1000(.9)^3

    Then this appreciates for 3 years at 10%

    final amount = 1000(.9)^3 (1.1)^3
    = 970.30

    So what do you think?
