**Martin**, Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 3:07amAt T=0, which is when we're in 1991, we want E(0)=73.7.

The slope in front of T is found as follow :

(76.9 - 73.7) divided by (1997-1991)

= 0.53333~ = 8/15

This mean thay the life expectancy would increase by 8/15th of a year every year.

In short, E(T) = 8/15 x T + 73.7

And E(17) = 8/15 x 17 + 73.7 which you can calculate.
