In 1920 the record for a certain race was 46.5 seconds. in 1980 it was 45.3 seconds let R(t) = the record in the race and t=the number of years since 1920

R(t) = 46.5 - t*0.02

what is the predicted record in 2003? 44.84

what is the predicted record in 2006?44.78

what year will the record be 44.58 seconds? 2015

help me figure this out, first I subtract 46.5 - 45.3 = 1.2 next 1980- 1920 = 60 1.2/60 = 0.02

are these correct
