**Superbowl Advertising** *Exercises 109 and 110 are based on the following graph and data showing the increasing cost of a 30-second television ad during the Super Bowl. ^{55}*

Year |
1970 | 1980 | 1990 | 2000 | 2010 |

Cost ($1,000) |
78 | 222 | 700 | 2,100 | 2,950 |

Take *t* to be the number of years since 1970 and *y* to be the cost, in thousands of dollars, of a Super Bowl ad.

**a.** Model the 1970 and 1990 data with a linear equation.

**b.** Model the 1990 and 2010 data with a linear equation.

**c.** Use the results of parts (a) and (b) to obtain a piecewise-linear model of the cost of a Super Bowl ad during 1970-2010.

**d.** Use your model to estimate the cost in 2004. Is your answer in rough agreement with the graph? Explain any discrepancy.
