    The number of years a person in the united states is expected to live can be approximated by the equation y=0.189x+70.8,where x is the number of years since 1970.solve this equation for x. use this new equation to determine in which year the approximate life expectancy will be 80.2 years.

    I have y=0.189x+70.8 Subtract 70.80 from both sides y- 70.8=0.189x Divide both sides by 0.189x y-70.8/0.189=x

    You have this x = ( y - 70.8)/0.189 plug in y = 80.2 and evaluate/simplify to find x
