A) assuming a linear relationship between price and demand, find a linear function which gives the demand for the watch in terms of its price.

Price=m*demand+b

put in both data points...

88=m2000+b

38=m12000+b

subtract the second equation from the first.

50=-10,000m

solve for m

then put either point back in the original equation, solve for b.
