According to this modle, by how much will the value of this piece of property increase between the years 2007 and 2008?

my answer

50,000x1.05=52500, goes up 2500 every year, so my answer is 2500, in one year $2500. or in 10 yrs it has apprecites to 75,000. I'm not sure if I have set this one up right. Thanks so much for checking my answer.
