MA105 Grantham Apple Inc Sales and Linear Equation Discussion

In section 2.1 you read about how we can model certain situations using linear equations. In particular, example 8 shows how you can create an equation to predict sales of a company

Pick a company whose sales you want to model and predict. Look up their sales information and pick 2 years of data. Using that information, create a linear equation that can be used to predict the sales of the company. Once you have your equation, predict the sales 2 years from now.

Make sure you include in your post the links where you found the relevant information. Clearly show your work. This includes naming the company, sharing the ordered pairs, defining variables, finding the slope, determining the equation, and then using that equation to predict.

When replying to your classmates, consider the company that they chose. How does the growth (or shrink) of the company compare with the company you chose? Do you think that the equation will be accurate 5 years from now? Why or why not?
