    I did that but it came out weird numbers instead of the year

    What does the 3.99 mean, what does 0.17 mean

    well the original formula is n=0.17t + 3.99

    but they asked me to solve for t using the equation n=0.17t + 3.99 in part b

    This is all vague, you're just throwing out formulas and not explaining what they are

    And initially your year is 1970, I can't really read it as it's a very blurry pic

    Yeah so all you have to do is plug in n = 12 as it's asking for that, and then you will get a number of years, and you add that to your initial year which is 1970 that will give you the year where 12 million woman were in college.

    You can test with the other results as well to make sure, try n = 10, you will see you get 2005.

    For example \[N=0.17t+3.99\] lets make n = 10 this means 10 million woman \[10=0.17t+3.99 \implies t = \frac{ 10-3.99 }{ 0.17 } = 35\] 1970+35 = 2005
