Stuck think I got the first half Linear Function who passes between two points given
(1994,53,504); (1995, 57,184)

ok I used the M=Y2-Y1/X2-X1

57,184-53,504/1995-1994= 3608x

How do I find the second problem the book says the correct answer is 3680x-7,2814,416

Do I use Y=mx+b
if so how?
Thanks any help would be appreciated(Wink)

$\displaystyle \displaystyle y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\Rightarrow y=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}(x-x_1)+y_1$
