Maths Revision
The value of Bob’s car can be calculated from the formula
V = 17000e-0.25t + 2000e-0.5t + 500
where V is the value of the car in pounds (£) and t is the age in years.
(a) Find the value of the car when t = 0
(b) Calculate the exact value of t when V = 9500
(c) Find the rate at which the value of the car is decreasing at the instant when t = 8.
