**DrBob222**, Saturday, August 2, 2008 at 2:05pmFor 2005, x = 5 so

y = -1777*5 + 27,153. Solve for y.

For 2009, x = 9 so

y = -1777*9 + 27,153. Solve for y.

For the number when y = 9383, set up

y = -1777*x + 27,153

substitute 9383 for y.

9383 = -1777*x + 27,153.

Solve for x. Then convert x to the year.

Check my thinking. Check my work.
