The table lists data regarding the average salaries of several professional athletes in the years 1991 and 2001.
year average salary
a)Use the data points to find a linear function that fits the data.
b) Use the function to predict the average salary in 2005 and 2010
Could someone please check my answers
b) in 2005 $1,780,100
in 2010 $2,363,600
no, if you are going to use the actual year for the value of x, I got
S(x) = 116700x - 232086700
then for 2005
S(2005) = 116700(2005) - 232086700
and S(2010) = 116700(2010) - 232086700
btw, the two given ordered pairs satisfy my equation
