i. the wage of labor, w (hint: it is determined by marginal product of labor)

ii. the rental rate, r (hint: it is determined by marginal product of capital)

iii. capital per worker, k

iv. income per worker, y

v. consumption per worker, c

both initially (the instance of an increase in the growth rate of labor force) and in the new steady state, as compared to the previous steady state (before the increase in the population growth rate). Then, support your answer in words and/or figure. There have been and will be no changes in the savings rates, and depreciation rates. We disregard exogenous technological progress (g=0).
