 Question 311333: I need help with this problem please. In 1990, the life expectancy of males in a certain country was 61.1 years. In 1996, it was 63.5 years. Let E represent the life expectancy in year t and let t represent the number of years since 1990. The linear function E(t) that fits the data is E(t)= ?t + ?(round to the nearest tenth). Then use the fuunction to predict the life expectancy of males in 2009. E(19)=? (round to the nearest tenth). Please help me with this. Thank you very much.

 Question 313259: Hello I have a problem, but cant seem to find out what i am doing wrong. The equations are solutions to systems of linear equations in three variables. 2x+ y-3z=-12 3x-2y-z= 3 -x+5y+2z=-3 I know you have to work only two equations at a time. My teacher took the class through it step by step but i'm thinking im making a mistake on my adding or subtracting because i keep coming out with the wrong answer.
