Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

y=mx +b

y=35.5(2)+b

y= 71+b

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

The 2 used to multiply 35.5, did you get from the ordered pair (2,317)??

No what i did was, i subtracted 317 and 246, because they are separated by 2 years. Then what i did was divide that number by 2. 


317 -246 is 71, 71/2 is 35.5
