In 2004 X would be:
X=4
and
In 2008 it would be:
X=8
Our question is:
Y=1777X+27153
Plugging in 4 in this equation to calculate for 2004:
Y=1777(4)+27153
Y=7180+27153
Adding:
Y=34261
So in 2004 there were 34261 gun deaths
For 2008:
Y=1777X+27153
Y=1777(8)+27153
Y=14216+27153
Adding:
Y=41369
So in 2008 there were 41369 gun deaths
