**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, September 26, 2007 at 3:04pmBy subtracting Asia's population from the world's totals in 1950 and 2000, I found the population, excluding Asia, was 965,000,000 in 1950 and 2,251,000,000 in 2000.

Next find how many more people were counted in 2000 than in 1950 by subtracting the two population figures.

Finally divide the 1950 population by that difference to get a decimal. Change it to a percent.
