I wasn't sure where to ask this question but when I googled it I couldn't find a forum.
I'm currently taking Finite Math and using MyMathLab. If anyone has any experience with the syntax/structure on there, I'm having trouble knowing what to input for a variable.
The problem is in 1960, there were 248,652 immigrants admitted to a country. In 2006, the number had increased to 1,030,870. Part (a) says:
Assuming the change is linear, write an equation expressing the number of immigrants, y, in terms of t, the number of years after 1900.
The solution is "y=" and then my formula. My question is: Do I put an "x" or a "t" for time? Normally the formula would be something like y=1111x-50 (the numbers are made up) but do I put =1111t-50 instead since MyMathLab uses that?
There's no similar example in any of my homework and I can't find any advice on their website. If anyone happens to know, I'd appreciate it. I'm not looking for any help with the actual problem but just whether I should put t or x for where x normally is.
