    there is something off about that equation....-1777 + 27153? but even that seems off maybe no negative sign?

    but with given equation x = 4 in 2004 so 4*-1777 = -7108 if that should be +27153 - 7108 = 20045 deaths in 2004 14714 in 2007 and 11160 = 27153 - 1777*x.......-27153 from both sides 11160 - 27153 = -1117*x -15993 = -1777*x......divide both sides by -1117 -15993/-1777 = x x= 9.......so 2009
