  1. When you devise a function, always check with know values to make sure at least the given conditions are satisfied.

    At t=0, the function should give $625, ie. f(0)=625.
    After two months, it should give $625-2*25=$575, or f(2)=575.

    Your attempt is close, but contains an error that makes the function not satisfy the given conditions.
