10-35.

When Kora graduates, she plans to purchase a hybrid car for

Write a piecewise-defined function to model the value of the car with respect to the number of months since Kora purchased the car.

Decide if the time in your function will be months or years. The first piece should be a linear function, the second an exponential (decay) function.

To write the expression for the exponential piece of the function, determine what the car will be worth after 1 year.

What will the car be worth 10 years after Kora purchases it?

Evaluate your function from part (a) for

years.
