Math Word Problem Average

The average annual number of cigarettes smoked by an adult in some country continues to decline. For the years 1997-2006, the equation y=-49.2x+1756.7 approximates this data. Here x is the number of years after 1997 and y is the average annual number of cigarettes somked. If this trend continues, find the year in which the average annual number of cigarettes smoked is zero. To do this let y=0 and solve for x. (Round down to the nearest year)
