Would this be correct?

What is the percent increase in the population for all six inhabited continents,

excluding Asia, from 1950 to 2000?

total for 1950 - 965,000,000

total for 2000 - 2,251,000,000

2,251,000,000 - 965,000,000 = 1,286,000,000

1,286,000,000 divided by 965,000,000 = 1.3326= 133% increase in population.

I think you got it!

Thanks Lance!
