You misread your data.
It says that the population is 1.58 % of the world's population.
Your read it as , "it's population is growing at 1.58%"
So some research as to the rate of growth of the population.
suppose it was 2.3% in 2010
then the population equation would be
P(t) = 107550697(1.023)^t , where t is the number of years since 2009
so for 2010, t=1
for 2012 , t = 3 etc

6) The formula for calculating the amount of money returned for an initial deposit into a bank account or CD (certificate of deposit) is given by
A is the amount of the return.
P is the principal amount initially deposited.
r is the annual interest rate (expressed as a decimal).
n is the number of compound periods in one year.
t is the number of years.
Carry all calculations to six decimals on each intermediate step, then round the final answer to the nearest cent.
Suppose you deposit $4,000 for 8 years at a rate of 7%.
a) Calculate the return (A) if the bank compounds annually (n = 1). Round your answer to the hundredth's place.
Answer:
