Look up the population of the city in which you live. If possible, find the annual percentage growth rate of your home city (use 0.9% if you can not locate this value). ◦Determine the population of your city in 10 years.
◦Determine how long until the population of your city doubles assuming a steady growth rate.
- Discuss factors that could possibly influence the growth rate of your city and state. ◦Do you live in a city or state that is experiencing growth?
◦Is it possible that you live in a city or state where the population is on the decline or hasn’t changed?
◦How would you solve this problem if the case involved a steady decline in the population (say -0.9% annually)?
