6-34.

Calculate this value with the two different data sets. Are they nearly the same?

P(*t*) = P_{0}(1 − rate)^{t}

Let the year 1998 correspond with *t* = 0.

Evaluate P(22).

Answers will vary depending on the rate estimate. ≈ 34,336,000(rate)

Approximate growth in population = P_{0}(growth factor).

Find growth factor in part (a).
