HELP PLEASE!! Can anyone help me with this, I have tried several different ways I still can seem to get it. A detective notes that 118 burglaries were reported through May of this year a. Create an equation that expresses the number of burglaries as a function of time (in months). b. Use this equation to estimate the number of burglaries through the end of the year.

    then in 5 months there have been 118 burglars for an average of 118/5 per month, what can we do with this rate of change?

    if 118/5 burglars happen in 1 month, then how many happen in 3 months? in 5 months? in 12 months? think about it.

    \[burglars=\frac{burglars}{month}*month\] \[burglars=burglars*\cancel{\frac{month}{month}}^{=1}\]
