## surryyy one year ago The population in the South in 2000 was 100,236,820. In 2010, the population in the South had increased by 14.3% from 2000. About many people lived in the South in 2010?

:/ 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.

can you show me how u got the answer tho? i dont really get the formula above

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

solve that in usual way first equation is how they got the percentage change in the first place
