- Sarah wants to buy a snowboard that has a total cost of $580, including tax. She has already saved $135 for it. At the end of each week, she is paid $96 for babysitting and is going to save three-quarters of that for the snowboard. Write an inequality that can be used to determine the minimum number of weeks Sarah needs to babysit to have enough money to purchase the snowboard. Determine and state the minimum number of full weeks Sarah needs to babysit to have enough money to purchase this snowboard.
- A car was purchased for $25,000. Research shows that the car has an average yearly depreciation rate of 18.5%. Create a function that will determine the value, V(t), of the car t years after purchase. Determine, to the nearest cent, how much the car will depreciate from year 3 to year 4.
