    given 

    n1 = 5000

    p1 = 23

    n2 = 8000

    p2 = 8

    Solving its slope m

    ........8 - 23 

    m =-------------------- = 1/200 or 0.005

    ..........5000 - 8000

    solving for b

    p = mn + b

    23 = 5000(1/200) + b

    23 = 25 + b

    23 - 25 = b

    b = - 2

    The linear equation is p = 0.005n - 2 ....... answer//
