    8.39+2.16•x=y

    x=years after retirement
    y=final value of the card

    no it is not proportional

    2009 is 11 years after the players retirement, sub 11 for x

    The equation would be 8.39 + 2.16x = y;
    To get x you would want to subtract 2009 by 1998. You get 11 (years). So 8.39 + 2.16 • 11 = $32.15.
