It's estimated that 9,300 deaths occurred from skin cancer at the end of year 2000 and that 200,000 deaths from skin cancer might occur by the end of 2050.

Assuming the number of annual number of skin cancer deaths increases geometrically, what is the expected number of deaths due to skin cancer in 2020?
