Step-by-step explanation:This is a simple exponential equation:

cost=17000*0.92^(years after 2008)

so since 2011-2008 yields 3

it will be 3 years after 2008, so

cost = 17000 * 0.92^3

$13,237.69

Answer:$ 17000 * 0.92 ^ 3 = $ 13237.696

to the nearest hundred it’s $ 13000

i hope yoe start to see the pattern here
