### Exponential population growth-predict the populations

Assignment Help Mathematics
##### Reference no: EM13124526

The U.S. Census Bureau International Database gives the population of the ten most- populated countries in the year 2000 and population predictions for 2050 for these countries: Chinahad 1.2 billion people in 2000 and is predicted to have a population of 1.3 billion in 2050. The U.S. had a population of 284 million in 2000 with a prediction of 420 million by 2050.

a. Assuming exponential population growth, predict the populations of China and the U.S. in the years 2100 and 2200.

b. Assuming exponential population growth, approximately when will China's population double?

c. What factors might make the assumption of exponential growth a faulty assumption?
