The population of a small town is growing at a constant rate. (Please show me step by step)

The population of a small town is growing at a constant rate. In 2007 the population was 15,400 and in 2013 the population was 22,600.


Part A: Use the data points (7, 15400) and (13, 22600) to write a linear model of the form: f(t) = mt + b, where t is the number of years after 2000 and b is the population in 2000.



Part B: Use the model from Part B to approximate the population in 2020.
