**DECLINING NUMBER of pay PHONES** As cell phones proliferate, the number of pay phones continues to drop. The number of pay phones from 2004 through 2009 (in millions) are shown in the following table (*x* = 0 corresponds to 2004):

Year, x | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |

Number of Pay Phones |
1.30 | 1.5 | 1.00 | 0.84 | 0.69 | 0.56 |

**a.**Plot the number of pay phones (*y*) versus the year (*x*).**b.**Draw the straight line*L*through the points (0, 1.30) and (5, 0.56).**c.**Derive an equation for the line*L*.**d.**Assuming that the trend continues, estimate the number of pay phones in 2012.
