A town's population has been growing linearly. In \( 2003 \) the population was \( 53,000 \) . The population has been growing by \( 1200 \) people each year. Write a linear equation for the population, \( P ( x ) \) , for \( x \) years after \( 2003 \) . \( P ( x ) = \square \). Use the formula to find the population in \( 2009 : \square\)
