INTERPRET DATA The population of India in 2017 was 1,352.6 million, and its growth rate was 1.4% per year. Calculate the 2018 population of India.

Summary Introduction

To determine: The population of Country I in 2018 if the population of Country I in 2017 was 1,352.6 million and the growth rate was 1.4% per year.

Introduction: Population comprises a number of individuals of a species in an area at a given time. It can change from time to time due to many factors such as environmental conditions, availability of natural resources, and movement of a few or more individuals in or out of the area. Mathematical and statistical formulas can be used to study the changes and effects of one or more factors on a population.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

  • Population of Country I in 2017 = 1,352.6 million
  • Growth rate = 1.4% per year

The population of Country I in 2018, based on the given information, can be calculated by using the following formula:

P2018=P2017+(P2017×Growth rate)

Here, P2018 is the population in 2018 and P2017 is the population in 2017
