Q:
# in 2001, the population in a town was 12% more than it was in 2000. if the population was 25,160 in 2002, which is 10% more than 2001, find the population in 2000

Accepted Solution

A:

2002=25,160

2001=22,644

2000=19,926.72 (need to round to 19,926)

2001:

25,160/10=2516

25,160-2516

2000:

22,644/10=2,264.4 (10%)

2,264.4/5=452.88 (2%)

2,264.4+452.88=2717.28 (12%)

22,644-2717.28=19.926.72

2001=22,644

2000=19,926.72 (need to round to 19,926)

2001:

25,160/10=2516

25,160-2516

2000:

22,644/10=2,264.4 (10%)

2,264.4/5=452.88 (2%)

2,264.4+452.88=2717.28 (12%)

22,644-2717.28=19.926.72
