# anticipated salary 1

Tom has just received a new job offer

He told that his salary will be \$75,000.00 per year

He is also told that his salary will probably be \$81,000.00 in four years

We will use this data to try to anticipate his future earnings in any given year

Assume that y= Tom’s salary amount in dollars and X = the number of years worked

Use the date given to find the rate of change, or the salary increase per year (hint: compute the slope)

We are now going to use a line model Tom’s salary growth

Use the data given and the slope value from step 1 to write the slope- intercept form of the line

Based on your equation from step 2, what will Tom’s salary be in ten years
