4. A once­popular children’s doll is slowly declining in popularity. The quartic function f(x) = − 0.025×4 + 0.561×3 − 3.617×2 − 1.219x + 86.923, where x is the number of years since 1993, can be used to estimate the number of dolls of this type that were sold (in thousands) during a given year from 1993 to 2003. Estimate how many dolls were sold in 1998.
