what is the annual growth rate of the painting's value? Write the answer as a percentage rounded to the nearest tenth.

 

The function V=250(1.28)^d models the value of a rare painting, in thousands of dollars, d decades after it sold at an auction for $250,000.

V=250(1.28)^d 

 

Since one year  =  d / 10.........we have

 

V = 250 (1.28)^(d/10)  =    

 

250 [(1.28)^(1/10)]^d  

 

250  [≈ 1.025]^d

 

250 [ 1 + .025 ]^d

 

So....the annual growth rate is   .025  ≈   2.5%
