Hi R-masters

I have this system of equations

R(x,t)= a(t)+b(x,t)
a(t) = c + d*t
b(t) = e + f*t

x is a vetor of age<-c(37,42,47,52,57,62,67,72,77,83),
t is vetor of year (1980:2000)
R(x,t) = Rate of mortality in age x on year t
a(t) = base mortality on year t
b(x,t) = exponential rate of mortality for age x on year t
b(t) = exponential rate of mortality on year t

I wish is possible fit this system in R?
Case positive Which the best method?

Thanks in advance
