5. (15 pts.) In 1999 Derek invested in a building that cost \$10,000. By 2004, fair-market value for the building was \$19,000. Assume that the value of the lot is increasing exponentially as time goes on. a. Find the value k, and write an exponential function that describes the value of the lot t years after 1999. b. Predict the value of the lot in 2015
