**Steve**, Friday, November 15, 2013 at 6:30amcost at t years from 1981 is

c = x + 27.80t

to find the cost in 1981, just plug in c=914 and t=20 and solve for x.

The function is above. It's kind of stupid to ask for the cost in 2000 -- we know it's $27.80 less than in 2001! Should have asked for some other year, to make use of the formula.
