The enrollment at A was 27,800 students in 2000 and declines by 550 students each year since then. The enrollment at college B was 14900 students in 2000 and increases by 900 students each year since then.

Let's call x the number year since 2000, A(x) the enrollment of students at A and B(x) the enrollment at college B

A(x)=27,800-550*x

B(x)=14,900+900*x

Don't hesitate to provide me a nice feedback. I will appreciate. Thank you.

Use your model to predict when both colleges will have the same enrollment. What is the enrollment?

Predict the years when the enrollment at colleges B will be greater than the enrollment at college A.

To determine when both colleges will have the same enrollement we have to solve A(x)=B(x)

A(x)=B(x) <=> 27,800-550*x=14,900+900*x

<=>27800-14900=900*x+550x

<=>12900=1450*x

<=>x=12900/1450

<=>x=8.9

for x=9 it means in 2009 A(x)=22,850 and B(x)=23,000

The enrollment will be pretty the same and starting from 2009 the enrollment at college B will be greater than the enrollment at college A.
