Pick a country of your choice that is experiencing population growth. Using the Library, web resources, and/or other materials to find the most recent population count of the country you have chosen and the population growth rate of that country. Use that growth rate to approximate the population in the year 2015. Please show the detailed, worked out solution. Write a paragraph about how one could use this information in a role as a politician, government administrator or business owner/operator. What will it mean to the country, its economy, resources or the business? Please reference all sources using APA style. Do not use the sample below; do not use India, China or the United states as the country. Type (1.014)^7 for (1.014) to the seventh power.

Note- that this sample:

Sample Post: The population of India in 2005 was 1,080,264,388 (there is more recent data available, so use the most recent you can find). The growth rate is 1.4%. Note that in this instance, the percent must be converted to its decimal equivalent before it can be used to make computations with the formula.

In 2006, the approximate population is 1,095,388,089. P = 1,080,264,388 * (1.014)^1
In 2007, the approximate population is 1,110,723,523. P = 1,080,264,388 * (1.014)^2
In 2008, the approximate population is 1,126,273,652. P = 1,080,264,388 * (1.014)^3

In 2012, the approximate population is 1,190,681,880. P = 1,080,264,388 * (1.014)^7
