Q7b

A computer, originally purchased for `\$2000`

, loses value according to the exponential equation `V(t) = 2000(\frac{1}{2})^{\frac{t}{h}}`

, where `V`

is the
value, in dollars, of the computer at any time,
`t`

, in years, after purchase and `h`

represents the half-life,in years, of the value of the computer. After 1 year, the computer has a value of approximately `\$1516`

.

**a)** What is the halfâ€”life of the value of the
computer?

**b)** How long will it take for the computer to be worth `10\%`

of its purchase price?
