What was the percentage increase in the age 75+ population of Europe from 1970 to 1995?
1970,22,762,1995,38,139

• math -

1. Subtract: 38,139 - 22,762 = 15,377

2. Divide: 15,377 / 38,239 = 0.40 = 40%

• math - correction -

Oops! I goofed.

Step 2 should be:
Divide: 15,377 / 22,762 = 0.676 = 67.6%
