4. From 1960 to 1990 the cost to administer social and economic programs rose from $1.9
billion to $16 billion. The cost in billions can be modeled by f(x) =0.47x-919.3,
where x is the year. Solve numerically or graphically for when the cost was $6.6 billion.
5. Medicare costs in billions of dollars may be modeled by f(x) =18x-35, 750, where
1995 x 5 2007. Estimate the years when Medicare costs were from 250 to 340 billion
dollars.
