This answer would equal to X=3

4,3 x is the first number then y

The first thing you should do for this case is to use the following table to perform the equation of a line:

y x

41,431 1995

48,729 2005

We have then that the line that best fits this data is

y = 729.8x - 1E + 06

Then, to know in what year the number of shopping centers reaches 80,000 we must replace this number in the equation of the line and clear x:

80000 = 729.8x - 1E + 06

Clearing x

x = (80000 + 1E + 06) / (729.8) = 1479.857495

nearest whole number

1480

This means that after 1480 years, 80000 shopping centers are reached.

Equivalently, this amount is reached in the year:

1480 + 1995 = 3475

In the year 3475

** answer**

** (a) y = 729.8x - 1E + 06**

** (b) In the year 3**475
