The equation p = 1.65t² + 18.25t + 155 approximates the average sale price p of a house (in thousands of dollars) for years t since 2010.

$364,000

−3.5(3)^2 − 0.5(3) + 65  =  32 in

 

 

For the second one, we need to replace t  with 8   [ 2018 is 8 years after 2010 ]

 

1.65(8)^2 + 18.25(8) + 155  = 406.6   =  $407,000
