    Angry I need help on this word problem i am not sure where i use the P(t) value

    Based on data from 1980 to 2005, the value of the dollar based on producer prices can be modeled by V(t) = −0.00004785t3 + 0.02314t2 − 0.04774t + 1.137

    where t is the number of years since 1980.

    Write the formula for P(t) given P(t) = 100V(t).

    I think all they want you to do is multiply V(t) by 100
