# Name Math 115 Fall 2019 Group # Problem 3-College Enrollment: In 2000, a small college had an enrollment of 3050 studentS In 2005, the enrollment was 4015 students. Assume the relationship between the student enrollment and the year is linear, starting in the year 2000. a. Write a linear equation to represent this relationship where t is the number of years since 2000 b. What is the rate of change, and what does it represent in this context? State the y-intercept as an ordered pair. What does it represent in this context? Interpret both coordinates. C. Predict the student enrollment at the college in 2013.
