### 6.10 Make a table

• At the beginning of the year 2000, the population of the United States was about 273.5 million. The rate of population growth was about 0.85% per year. If that rate continues, what will the population be at the beginning of 2010?

• What is important information?

• What are we trying to find?

• In this case a table can help us organize our data.

• How can you find the increase in population from the beginning of 2000 to the end of that year?

• How can you fins the population at the beginning of 2001?

• Since the percent of increase is the same each year, will the population increase also be the same?

• Would you get the same answer if you multiplied 273.5 by .0085 and 10?

• Why will this method give you an incorrect answer?
