If the percentage declined linearly during this time, then do the following 1. Find the linear equation that can be used to predict the Fun Pop's percentage of soft drink market, y, based on the year, x. 2. What is the slope of the linear equation and its interpretation 3. Find the x-intercept and interpret its meaning 4. Predict Fun Pop's percentage of soft drink market in 2014.
