Answer: 4 916 083 Step-by-step explanation: population in 1990 1.5 : 100 = x : 4 786 000 x = 1.5 · 4 786 000 / 100 x = 1.5 · 47 860 x = 71 790 4 786 000 + 71 790 = 4 857 790 population in 2000 1.2 : 100 = x : 4 857 790 x = 1.2 · 4 857 790 / 100 x = 0.012 · 4 857 790 x = 58 293.48 4 857 790 + 58 293.48 = 4 916 083.48 Reply
