The population of six inhabited continents in 2000 was 6,279,000,000 and in 1950 it was 2,556,000,000. What is the % increase excluding Asia which pop. in 2000 was 4,028,000,000 and in 1950 pop. in Asia was 4,028,000,000?

    Please check your numbers. You show the same population in Asia in 1950 and 2000.

    sorry that number for Asia in 1950 should have been 1,591,000,000

    By 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.
