For the period 1985-2001, the average salary "y"(in thousands of dollars) per season of a Major League Baseball player can be modeled by y=7x^2-4x+392 where x is the number of years since 1985.

Write and solve an equation to find the year when the average salary was $1,904,000.

Plug in 1,904,000 for y.

1,904,000=7x^2-4x+392

Solve for X.

X= Year
