# Use the data given to find the rate of change or the salary increase per year (Hint: compute the slope)

Anticipated Salary

Tom has just received a new job offer

He is told that his starting Salary will be 75,000. Per year

He is also told that his salary will probably be 83,000 in four years

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

Assume that y is Tom’s Salary amount in dollars and x= the number of years worked

Step 1

**Use the data 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 to model Tom’s salary growth

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

Step 3

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