(1 pt) Suppose that in the year 2000, the cost of a compact car averaged \$ 12600 and that in 2003, the cost averaged \$ 14100. Assuming that the relationship between year t and cost c is linear, develop a formula for predicting the average cost of a compact car in the future measuring the variable t as years since 2000. Be sure to use the lower case variables t and c. .
What do you predict the average cost of a compact car will be in the year 2008?
