Are you wanting to graph the function?

Model the data in the chart with a linear function, find the slope, then you can choose one of the two points and write an equation in point-slope form, or you could plug in one point and the slope into slope-intercept form (y = mx+b) and solve for the y-intercept

The chart shows a country’s annual egg production. Model the data in the chart with a linear function, using the points (2, 57.7) and (4, 61.3) Predict egg production in 2008. Here is the chart: Year, x Egg Production (in billions), y 1994, 0 55.4 1995, 1 56.2 1996, 2 57.7 1997, 3 59.2 1998, 4 61.3 1999, 5 63.8 200, 6 65.7 So, you would model the data in the chart with a linear function, using the points (2, 57.7) and (4, 61.3), find the slope: change in y over change in x = 3.6 / 2 = 1.8 . point-slope form: y - y1 = m(x - x1) y - 57.7 = 1.8(x - 2) y - 57.7 = 1.8x - 3.6 y = 1.8x + 54.1 Second, find the production in 2008. That's year 14 (2008 - 1994), so plug 14 in for x, so you can calculate y. Answer: y = 1.8x + 54.1 y = 1.8(14) + 54.1 y = 79.3 billion eggs in 2008
