i just did this for you

OpenStudy (anonymous):

to graph this function, simply plug in points and graph. or plug it into a graphing calculuator. To find the population in the town in 1985, you must determine how many years 1985 is from 1985. Then plug that value into the equation , namely p(x)=4+(1/2)x everywhere you see x .
