The above lot is valued at $12 per square foot. The building on the lot is given an economic life of 30 years and a replacement cost of $180,000. If the building is 6 years old, what is the total value of the property?
You’re doing pretty well so far.
Can you make it all the way?
How many cubic feet are contained in a cylinder 20 feet high, with a diameter of 20 feet?

A seller nets $17,000 after paying an 8% commission and $2300 in miscellaneous closing costs. They had a $56,000 mortgage that they had to pay off at closing.
