    who smoke. Round to the nearest year. What percentage of women and what percentage of men (to the nearest whole percent) will smoke at that time? [Hint: first find the slope-intercept equation of the line that models the percentage, y, of women who smoke x years after 1990 and the slope-intercept equation of the line that models the percentage, y, of men who smoke x years after 1990]
