According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were approximately 16.3 million workers in the year 2000 and 14.9 million workers in 2010. Consider
The ordered pairs in this problem would be (0, 14900000) and (-10, 16300000). Using the slope equation, we find that slope is -140000. By plugging in slope and one of the points, we find that the linear equation is y = -140000x + 14900000.
