Don't think I am going to graph it.. but idea isn't too bad.. Take the word problem and translate it to algebra.. You can first establish a base.. in this case. 1980 and 19,000 So, y(x) = m x => 19,000 = m (1980) and => 42,000 = m (2000) This is kinda good.. but we need to find out what m is.. Do you know how to find what m is?

The money axis can be thought of in the variable "y" and the Year can be labeled as "x" , just for simplicity sake.

you get an x and y coordinate, it's simply write in point notation (x,y)

Then, as you fish through your book, there is an equation that you need to use call a point slope equation.. it is basicly for taking 2 points and calculating the slope. Do you know it? or can you find it and type it in for me?
