# How much more output just to provide the 2.7

**Question description**

Using the average yearly growth rates provided in the table below, calculate the index of real GDP and population growth between 2000 and 2010 for China, Canada, and Zimbabwe. Assume that the value of this index is equal to 100 for the year 2000. Calculate the growth rates for these three countries using the compounding growth function.

Note: To calculate the growth in GDP, use the compounding growth function: p^{0} x (1+ r)^{t} where p^{0} is the original value of 100, r is the growth rate (for example, a growth rate of 2.1% (Canadian GDP) has a decimal equivalent of r = 0.021), and t is the number of years of growth (10 years in this case).
