  1. 1. V = Vo(1-r)^t.
    Vo = Initial value of car.
    r = 0.08/12mo. = 0.0067/mo.
    t = Time in months.
    V = Vo(1-0.0067)^1 = 0.9933Vo.

    2. V = Vo(1-r)^t.
    r = 0.08/52wks. = 0.00154/wk.
    t = Time in weeks.
    V = Vo(1-0.00154)^1 = 0.9985Vo.

    3. V = Vo(1-r)^t.
    r = 0.08/365da. = 0.000219/day.
    V = Vo(1-0.000219)^1 = 0.9998Vo.
