3-53.

Assume that a DVD loses

What multiplier would you use to calculate the video’s new values?

0.40

What is the value of the DVD after one year? After four years?

Use your multiplier from part (a) to calculate these values.

Write a continuous function,

, to model the value of a DVD afteryears.When does the video have no value?

Let
