1 Answer

  • Answer: 37%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Initial Population                                        = 100,000

     Population after 5 years                            = 137,000

    Population increase                                    = 137,000 - 100,000

                                                                         = 37,000

    Therefore % increase                                  = 37,000/100,000 x 100

                                                                         = 37%
