2. the difference between 1995 and 2001 is 6 years, so you add 6 to 73.7 and you get
0.6t+73.7, that's the first set of answers. Next, you replace the t with the 11 to represent the difference between the next set of years (1995 to 2006) so the next set of answers is
E(11)= 79.2 because you simplify the years 0.5(11)+73.7 and that's how you get your answer :)
