    Wheres the beef!

    Beef consumption, in billions of pounds, in the U.S. in year x can be approximated by the function

    B(x)= -154.41+39.38ln x where x is years after 1900 ( so x = 0 is the year 1900)

    How much beef was consumed in 2012?

    This is an example of throwing a problem at us and grunting "you solve". It don't work that way.

    Post back with an attempt at it.

    x is defined as the number of years after 1900. So when the year is 2012, what is x?
