Justify your answer by showing/explaining your work.i really need help :( im working hard to get all my school work done and this one thing is making my head hurt :(

Accepted Solution

A:
y =  25,000 • 0.95^x
at x = 1a0 = y = 25,000 • 0.95^x  a0 =  25,000 • 0.95^(1)a0 = 23750.00
at x = 2a1 = y =  25,000 • 0.95^xa1 =  25,000 • 0.95^( 2 )a1 = 22562.50
at x = 3a2 = y =  25,000 • 0.95^xa2 = 25,000 • 0.95^( 3 )a2 = 21434.38
