PHONE A:

PHONE B:

- Which phone is more expensive to buy when it is first released?
- How does the value of each phone change with every passing year?
- Which one is falling in value more quickly? Explain or show how you know.
- If the phones continue to depreciate by the same factor each year, what will the value of each phone be 4 years after its initial release?
- For each cell phone, write an equation that relates the value of the phone in dollars to the years since release, t. Use v for the value of Phone A and w for the value of Phone B.
