Assume the relationship between years on the market and profit is linear. Use ordered pairs of t, years on the market, and p, profit to write an equation of the relationship. Use the equation to predict the profit the fifth year.Answer by jojo14344(1513)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Let Profit,p = x . *note: values = Also, let years,t = y Given: } Via Point Slope Form, Via Slope-Intercept Form, Thru point (,)=(12,1) Also, thru point (22,3) Then, it follows ---> When, t=y= 5 years, ---> , (Answer) Thank you, Jojo
