**THE NARROWING Gender Gap** Since the founding of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the passage of equal-pay laws, the gulf between men’s and women’s earnings has continued to close gradually. At the beginning of 1990 (*t* = 0), women’s wages were 68% of men’s wages, and by the beginning of 2000 (*t* = 10), women’s wages were projected to be 80% of men’s wages. If this gap between women’s and men’s wages continued to narrow *linearly,* then women’s wages were what percentage of men’s wages at the beginning of 2008?
