# Thread: Given past dates and numbers, predict what date number X will occur in the future

1. ## Given past dates and numbers, predict what date number X will occur in the future

I have dates and numbers. I need to predict when the number X will occur. how can i predict this?
For example:
March 14, 2009 00:01 PST (UTC: Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 07:01)= 248,086.
March 16, 2009 = 249,369
March 17 00:30 PST = 249,358.
Marh 17: 00:54= 249,556.
______ = 256,000?

this problem sure does not belong here... the programming talk forum should be the place you should be looking for... but, seriously, i cant make head or tail of the problem!! where exactly did you get the values of X from?
