The table shows the minimum wage for three different years.
Year 1940, 1968,1997
wages for 1940 $.025, 1968 $1.60, 1997 $5.15
estimate the minimum wage in 1976 and compare it to the actual value of $2.30
and estimate when the minimum wages was $1.00.
If the current trends continue, predict the minimum wage in 2009. Compare it to the projected value of $7.25
Make a scatterplot of the data in the viewing rectangle (1930,2010, 10) by (0,6,1)
