    :/ I think it's 14.3% x 100,236,820 first and then add that result to 100,236,820 0.143 x 100,236,820 = approximately 14,333,865 because .26 of a person doesn't exist and then 100,236,820+14,333,865 = 114,570,685 people for 2010... not 100% sure though.. feels like 70% confidence.

    start with this \(\huge \frac{P_{2010} - P_{2000}}{P_{2000}} = 0.143\) and \(\large P_{2000} = 100,236,820 \)
