y = 1777x + 27153
1 year after 2000 would be 2001
2006 and 2007 would be ? and ? years after 2000 respectively.
So we substitute these numbers for x, to get
y = 1777 * 6 + 27153
and
y = 1777 * 7 + 27153
Calculate those out for your answers.
The last part says:
1777x + 27153 = 12937
so
1777x = 12937  27153
Subtract and divide across by 1777 to get x.
