    720; 12000x.01x6 = 720 So then we read the question fully and 12000-720 = 11280

    Answer is 11280, make sure you don't put 720, do you know how I got this?

    Ok so it's declining at a 1% rate. 1% is .01. So we do 12000 x .01 which = 120. This is happening for 6 years so we do 120 x 6(years) and get 720. The question says what is the population after 6 years so 12000-720 = 11280
