Sales at a computer retail store were \$1,000,000 in 1982 and \$1,790,000 in 1987

let x=0 represent 1982

find the equation giving year sales. estimate sales in 1990.

Could you guys help me with this.

sales=slope*time+constant

slope= 1.790/5

sales= 1.790/5 * (year-1982)+1,000,000

sales in 1990=1.790/6(1990-1982)+1000000
