Are we assuming that the relation is linear ?

Then treat the data as two ordered pairs

(3,25000) and (23,68000)

slope = (68000-25000)/(23-3) = 43000/20 = 2150

using the y=mx+b equation for a straight line

sales = 2150month + b

sub in 3,25000)

25000 = 2150(3) + b

b = 18550

sales = 2150month +18550

so if month = 24

sales = ......
