Just substitute the values of x (55 and 35) into the equations of the curve given.

Put the two values given into the equations on the graph as the X values and fing the corresponding Y.

No it has to be exact (to 3 decimal places)....those pictures are as good as I get.....someone answered a similar question for me earlier - you don't need the scales.

I meant using the exponential equations of the curves plotted, see the answer below.
So you substitute in 55 as x in the 1st question, and 35 as x in the second.

EDIT:

154.806... = 155 (to nearest whole no.)
3.1548... = 3.155 (to 3 d.p.)

I just checked it:

y = 5.4941 x e (0.0607 x 55)
y = 154.806...

Thanksssssss!

1)

y = 5.4941 * e^(0.0607 * x)
We are given that x = 55.

So y= 5.4941 * e^(3.3385)
y=5.4941 * 28.17682975

So y = 154.7189721

y = 155 (0dp)

2)

y= 0.3105 * (x^0.6521)

We are given that x = 35

So y = 0.3105 * (35^0.6521)
=> y = 0.3105 * 10.15983773

So y = 3.154629616

y = 3.155 (3dp)

You've only got to replace the Xs with the numbers given, NikNak. Maths isn't that scary!
