Find the formula

*t*(*n*) that represents the value of the house each year.See the online help for problems 2-38 and 2-85.

*V*= 450,000(1.03)^{y}where

*V*= value of the house ($)

*y*= time (years)If Jillian's parents sell their house 10 years after they bought it, how much profit will they make? (That is, how much more are they selling it for than they bought it for?) Express your answer as both a dollar amount and a percent of the original purchase price.

After you find how much the house is worth after 10 years, do not forget to subtract the original price to find the profit.
