4. Compare the population per square mile in Asia to the population per square mile

in North America for the year 2000.

Asia

Land Area (1,000 mi2) -17,400

Percent of Earth 30.1%

Population in 1900 - 932,000,000 Population in 1950 - 1,591,000,000

Population in 2000 - 4,028,000,000

How would I go about figureing this out?

You have been given some data than you do not need to calculate the population density of Asia in 2000. Just divide the 4,028,000,000 population by the area of (17,400 x 1000) mile^2. For the North American population density, you will need to do some additional research to get the data you need. Central America as far south as Panama is usually considered part of North America.

So would the answer be 231.49 miles?

I am still confused if it is not correct.
