Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

8 miles long and 5miles wide.

 the area in square miles is 8 x 5 = 40  Square miles

Total population  = 72450  ( The whole city)

Per square  mile it is 72450/40

= 1811.25 

Since there are no half people we round of to the nearest whole number


=1811
