 Question 81464: #66 Some scientists believe there is a limit to how long humans can live. One supporting argument is that during the last century, life expectancy from age 65 has increased more slowly than life expectancy from birth, so eventually these two will be equal, at which point, according to these scientists, life expenctancy should increase no further. In 1900, life expectancy at birth was 46yr, and life expectancy at age 65 was 76. In 2000, these figures had risen to 76.9 and 82.9 , respectively. IN both cases, the increase in life expenctancy has been linear. Using these assumptions and the data given, find the maximum life expectancy for humans.
