Use this formula to solve the following exercise. Round your answer to the nearest dollar and make sure to include the dollar sign. If the inflation rate is 5% , how much will a house now worth 780,000\$ be worth in 3 years? ANSWER: .Answer by math-vortex(472)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hi, there-- . We are given the formula . . where C = the value today, R = the annual inflation rate, and S = the inflated value t years from now. . Find the inflated value S, when . R = 5% C = \$780,000 t = 3 years . First, convert 5% to a decimal representation. 5% = 0.05 . Substitute the known values into the formula and solve for S. . . I the context of this problem, S=902947.5 means that the inflated value of the house is \$902,947.50. We are asked to round to the nearest dollar. Rules vary when the cents are exactly 50. I usually round up. Therefore the inflated value of the house os \$902,948. . Hope this helps! Feel free to email if you'd like me to explain any part in more detail. .
