2. Write an equation for the line that contains the the data points for

1990 and 2000.

I used ( 0, 1113915 ) ( 10, 1238415 ) My answer is y = 112,450X + 1113915 ** <<<<< you've got a nervous index finger. The equation of the line is: y = 12,450X + 1113915** 3. Use each of these equations to predict the population of New Hampshire in 2010. And for each prediction explain why you could expect it to provide an accurate forecast. y= 14,103X + 533242 1,379,422 ( I plugged in 60) y = 112,450X + 1113915 3,362,915 ( i plugged in 20) I think my first equation in correct but did I do something wrong with my second equation?
