**Damon**, Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at 5:47pmcall the population in the seventies X

then in the eighties it was (X-485)

in the nineties it was 2+2X +(X-485) {I am taking the English here literally that the population "INCREASED" an amount 2+2X over what it was in the eighties. I hope you do not have a typo and it should be "INCREASED TO"}

in 2000s 2+2X +X - 485 -25 = 7

so there is your equation to solve for X
