An investment manager uses the following formula to predict the value, V, of his investment in dollars, n years after he purchases a new technology stock. 

V=68,000+1200(n-3)

Based on this formula, how many years will it take for the investment to best be worth $73,400?

(73400- 68000) / 1200    + 3   =   n

V=73400=68000+1200(n-3)

5400=1200(n-3)=1200(9/2)

so n=3+9/2=$\boxed{15/2 \  years}$
