Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose x=day y=total attendances on the first day (x=1) ,y=425 on the third day (x=2), y=575 the equation of a line is y=mx+b plug the value of x and y 425 = m + b 575 = 3m + b solve that , you'll get m=75 and b= 350 so the equation of the line is y = 75x + 350 if you want to find the number of attendances on sixth day, plug x=6 , you'll get the value of y(attendances) y = 75(6) + 350 = 800
