Step 1

Let x represents the number of years after 2006 and \$ y  represents the yearly tuition fees, When x=0 , y=\$30000 and when x=1, y=\$30000+1750=\$31750 , then the linear function passes through (0,30000) and (1, 31750), From this we can slope of line and the equation of line as shown on board.

Step 2

In 2012, that is when x=6 years, we can find tuitio...
