The price of a certain new car increases by the same amount each year. The first year it was $19400 and in the 12th year it was$33700. In which year will the car cost $37600? ## 1 Expert Answer By: David W. answered • 05/05/17 Tutor 4.6 (62) Experienced Prof Asif L. Thanks for your response. According to my calculation ($37600-$19400)/(11 years)=$1654. How is the $1300 appeared? Report 05/05/17 David W. tutor CORRECTION (I don't like to edit using HTML): There are 11 years (that is, 11 increases) from the first year to the twelfth year. ($33700 - $19400)/(11 years) =$14300/(11 yr) = $1300/yr ($37600 - $33700) / ($1300/yr)
$3900 / ($1300/yr) = 3 years

12th year + 3 years = 15th year
