Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consider 1998 as year "zero". That means 2005 is year "seven". The question is now this: Find the equation of the line through the points: (0,42) and (7,22) Hope this helps. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we assume x as year and y as percentage we have 2 points (1998,42) & (2005,22) so y=(20/7)*(x1998)+42.
