The number of kidney and liver transplants in the United States between 1992 and 1996 can be modeled by
K(x) = 9088.859 + 1697.717 In x kidney transplants
L(x) = 2424.764 + 915.025 In x liver transplants
where x is the number of years since 1990.
a. Construct a model for the number of kidney and liver transplants between 1992 and 1996.
b. Use the model to estimate the number of kidney and liver transplants in 1995.
I have answers in the back of my book. I get the first answer. But I don't understand how to get the second.
a. T(x) = 9088.859 + 1697.717 In x + 2424.764 + 915.025 In x = 11,513.623 + 2612.742 In x kidney and liver transplants, where x is the number of years since 1990.
b. T(5) = 15,719 approximately
I don't not understand how to get the answer for b part, I can not get that answer I have tried many different ways to plug it in, and can not seem to get it. Please help.
