The average price in dollars to rent a studio in Back Bay, Boston, Ma. can be approximated by the equation p=30.2t +
587,where t is the number of years since 1990. Solve this equation for t and use the new equation to determine approximately what year it will be when the average price of a studio in this city reaches $1432.60.

  1. 30.2 t + 587 = 1432.6 Subtract 587 to both sides

    30.2 t + 587 - 587 = 1432.6 - 587

    30.2 t = 845.6 Divide both sides by 30.2

    t = 845.6 / 30.2

    t = 28

    1990 + 28 = 2018
