please help (creating linear equation question)

The income per person over time for the United States is an approximately linear relation after 1950.

(a) In 1952, the income per person in the United States was about $17 000. In 2011, the

income per person was about $50 000. Create a linear equation to model the income

per person over time, where time is the number of years after 1920. (This means time

zero is 1920.) Round numbers to the nearest whole number for your equation.

(b) Using this equation, what would be the income per person in the year 2030?
