1,270 deer are living on an island that is 830 square kilometers in size. What is the population density of the deer per square kilometer? 1,270/830 = 1.53 deer/sq. km

A city with 53,340 people has 876 births. What is the birth rate? (876/53,340)(100) = 1.64 births per 1000 women

Another city experiences 12 deaths for each thousand people. What is the death rate? 12 deaths per 1000 people

A village of 23,473 people have 2,342 births and 473 deaths. What is the growth rate for this village? 2,342 – 473 = 1,869
Growth Rate = (difference/original)(100)
= (1,869/23,473)(100)
= 7.96%
OR Growth Rate = (crude birth – crude death)/10

A small country of 744,785 people have 44,678 immigrants and 12,567 emigrants. They also experience 15,898 deaths and 35,665 births. What is the growth rate of this small country? (44,678 + 35,665) – (12,567 + 15,898) = 51,878
(51,878/744,785)(100) = 7.0%

Would you be likely to find this country in Africa or Europe?

How many years will it take for this country to double its population? Rule of 70. 70/7 = 10 years

If a country were doubling its population every 35 years, what would its growth rate be? 70/35 = 2%

If a city of 3,400 people was growing at a rate of 3%, what would its population be in 25 years?
