Answer: $132,376.96

Step-by-step explanation:

The cost of the boat was $170,000, but every year, the value depreciated by 8% and he bought the boat 2016.

In 2017, the boat depreciated by 8%,

8/100 * $170000 = $13,600.

$170,000 – $13600 = $156,400.

In 2018, the boat depreciated by 8%

8/100 * $156,400 = $12,512

$156,400 – $12,512 = $143,888

In 2019, the boat depreciated by 8%

8/100 * $143,888 = $11,511.04

$143,888 – $11,511.04 = $132,376.96

The current value of the boat is $132,376.96
