Population Currently there are 6.9 billion people on earth (6.9 x 10 9 ) The rate at which population grows is proportional to the existing number of people - The number of people born depends on the number of potential parents - At the current rate of growth the population doubles every 35 years (as people live longer this gets shorter) - If you (and a partner) have 2 children by 35 and they do the same when you are 70 there will be six of you. - Then assuming you die off (which having kids can cause) the population has gone from 2 when you where <35 to 4 when you are gone at 70… This is exponential growth
