Hi Joslynn, here is a simple answer.

Hi Joslynn, here is a simple answer.

The current population of Tanzania is 49.25 million. It's growth rate is 3 percent per year.

So, in 6 years, the population should be 49.25 million * (1.03)^6 =58.807 million

The current population of Tanzania is 49.3 million with a population growth rate of 2.93% per year. The average annual agricultural yield in Tanzania is 8500 kg/ha.  average agricultural output has increased at a linear rate of about 1.5% per year for the last five years or so. Ideally, one person should have a caloric intake of at least 2000 kcal per day in order to maintain their life. 1 kg grain supplies 3000 kcal; 1 kg tubers supplies 1000 kcal
