To find the population growth rate subtract the population of 2006 from 2007. Divide that answer by the 2006 population.

Australia’s growth rate from 2006 to 2007 was 0.67% per year.

1). 20,743,300 subtract 20,605,500 divided by 20,605,500 which equal the Population growth which is .00668 = 0.67%

2). 20,743,300 times .0067 equals the amount of growth of the population in 2007 which equals 138981

3). Find the approximate population which is 138981 + population of 2007 (which is 20,743,300) = 2008 population which is 20,882,281( 26 January 2008)

Using Australia data in the reference

20,882,281( 26 January 2008)

20,743,300 (26 January 2007)

20,605,500 (26 January 2006)

20,171,300 (26 January 2005)

**Reiny**, Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 8:51amThe way I understand it is that ALGRBRA wants to have the steps above labeled 1) 2) and 3) in mathematical statements.

So....

1): Population growth = (20743300 - 20605500)/20605500

= .0066875

= .67%

2): amount of growth of the population in 2007 = 20743300(.67%)

= 20743300(.0067)

=138980

3): approximate population in 2008 = 138981 + 20743300

=20882281

BTW, all your populations were expressed in hundreds, so I would not leave my answers in the number form of your given data.

I would state the 2008 population as

20,882,300
