There were 8 diseased mice 4days after the first exposure and 14 diseased mice after 6 days. (a) Write an equation that will give the number of diseased mice after any given number of days.

Think of those as the coordinates of 2 points. In order to get the equation, you have to trace the line which touches those points. You can find that equation anywhere on the internet, howewer your equation is (3x + y + 4)/6 = 0

if you want to know how many mice is there, for example, on the 23rd day, you have to insert 23 in place of the X, and the resulting Y will be the number you search ;)
