Suppose that a two-bedroom house in Nashville is worth

How much will it be worth in

years? General form:

Let

*x*= number of years andvalue of house. Write an equation using the general form of the exponential equation.*a*is the initial value of the house, and*b*is the multiplier.When will it be worth

? Using the equation in part (a), guess and check values for

. Your answer will be approximate.In Homewood, houses are depreciating at a rate of

each year. If a house is worth now, how much will it be worth two years from now? Write another equation. Note that the value is depreciating this time.
