In 1960, there were 450,000 cases of measles reported in the U.S. In 1996, there were 500 cases reported. How many cases of measles would have been reported in 1987 if the number of cases reported from 1960 to 1996 decreased linearly?

 

 

 

 

I'm not quite sure how to do this problem.

It is a DEcreasing value

slope = rise/run   =   -449500 / 36 = -12486.11   per year

 

1960   450000    27 years later?

 

450000 - 27 (12486.11) =112875 cases in 1987
