**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 8:13pmYou gave the population in 1805. But the problem wants you to compare the 1905 population with the 1895 figure.

**jazz**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 8:17pmooo sorry. so would you do 2120 x 1.15? because you are figuring out 115% of 2120?

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 8:19pmYes. That's correct.

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 8:25pmYes. The population in 1905 was 2438.

2438 - 2120 = 318.

The population increased by 318 people between 1895 and 1905.
