From Gayle: I don't understand the second part of this problem Here is the first part that was correct. A 35yr old has 100% blood flow. A 65yr old has 64% blood flow. Find the rate of change per yr in the percent of blood flow. (This part is correct) m=(64-100)/(35-65)= -36/30= -1.2 per year of blood flow.
Now, here is the second part I DON'T UNDERSTAND! .Let b represent the percent of blood flow and a represent a person's age. Write an equation that you could use to predict the percent of blood flow for a person of any age over 35.
