The current population in the United States is 318,968,000. The rate is .72. What will the population be in the United States in 10 years? Show work please.

0.72 x 318,968,000 = 229,656,960

229,656,960 x 10 = 2,296,569,600

2,296,569,600 + 318,968,000 = 2,615,537,600

I hope this helps? :)

P.S. I am not sure I did it right, but please see if this helps.
