Answer: Population densities are 27547 and 8087 respectively.
Stepbystep explanation:
Since we have given that
Census of New York city:
Area = 302.64 sq. miles
Number of population = 8336697
Population density is given by
[tex]\frac{Population}{Area}\\\\=\frac{8336697}{302.64}\\\\=27546.58\\\\\approx 27547[/tex]
Census of London :
Area = 469 sq. miles
Number of population = 3792621
Population density is given by
[tex]\frac{Population}{Area}\\\\=\frac{3792621}{469}\\\\=8086.61\\\\\approx 8087[/tex]
Hence, Population densities are 27547 and 8087 respectively.
