Ms. Sue,
The country I selected from the site linked below had an estimated July 2007 population of 20,434,176 and an estimated growth rate of 0.824%
Since the percentage is less than 1, the population is decreasing in this country.
To find the 2008 population, I multipled: 20,434,176 * 0.00824 = 16,837,776.
To find the 2009 population, multiply 16,837,776 * 0.00824 = ?
