I am having problems figuring out some of my word problems for this week. Could someone check these?
The equation y=1777x+27,153 can be used to predict the number of gun deaths in the U. S. x years after 2000, that is, x=0 corresponds to 2000, x=2, corresponds with 2002, x=5, corresponds with 2005 and so on. Predict the number of gun deaths in 2005 and 2007. In what year will the number of gun deaths be 12,937?
200518,268
200714,714
it will be 12,937 in 2008

yes.

1777*5 +27153 = 18 268
1777*7 +27153 = 14 714
12 937 = 1777 x + 27153
x = 8 so 2008 check
