SAT Math: Interpreting the y-Intercept in a Given Linear Function
A financial crisis hits the town of Springfield, and many of its factories and businesses shut down. A large number of its residents begin moving to other cities to find new economic opportunities. Very few new residents move into the city during this time. The population during this period of economic instability can be estimated by the equation above, where P represents the town's estimated population once the crisis has occurred and t represents the number of years that have passed since the crisis began. What does the value 15,831 represent?
