1. Mandy kept track of the trade-in value of a collector’s coin for several months through February of this year. She determined the line of best fit for the data was y = 4x + 12, where y is the trade-in value, in dollars, x months after February of this year. According to the equation, when will the trade-in value of the coin be \$44?

a) December of the same year
b) October of the same year
c) April of the following year
d) June of the following year

1. Y = 4x + 12 = \$44.
4x = 44-12 = 32
X = 8 Months = Oct. of same yr.

2.C

3. 8 < x + 3
X > 8-3
X > 5.

7 > 5
