Note: whens solving for k, round to four decimal places.

Population growth formula is

P=P' *e^rt

Where P and P'are final and initial population and r,t are rate of growth and time.

1995--206 million

1998--210million

Time=3yrs

Rate of growth=?

210=206*e^3r

210/206=e^3r

Log base e(210/206)=3r

0.01923136193=3r

r=0.01923136193/3

=0.00641045397

=0.00641%

Next step is:

1998--210 million

2008--?

P=210*e^0.00641*10

=210*e^0.0641

=210*1.06620

=223.902 million

~=224million

Hence the population in 2008 will be almost 224 million.
