Compare the population per square mile in Asia to the population per square mile in North America for the year 2000.
North America :
land area 9,400 (1,000 mi squared)
population 305,000,000
Do I divide 305,000,000 by 9,400,000?
and do the same for Asia?

Yes. You should get about 32 people per square mile in North America.
Do the same for Asia.

Yes, this OK.
I assume that the land area for Asia is in the same units? If the figure for Asia is not in the same units (square miles) you will need to convert them.
