There are two points:

(8,45000) and (11,84000)

a, the rate of change is (84000-45000)/(11-8) = 28000/3

b, use the slope 28000/3 and a point, you can plug into the formulas

c, once you have the equation, plug in 16 then you will get the answer

The above answer is wrong. (84000-45000) is not 28000, it is 39,000. Therefore 39000/3 is 13000. M =13000.
