pp (present population) = The population at the beginning of the calculation.

fp (future population) = The population after a certain number of years (yrs).

pct (percentage) = The percentage increase in population per period, usually per year.

(In population studies, this is usually taken to mean births minus deaths.)

yrs (years) = The number of years required to effect a certain growth in population.

Several examples are at this link below with explanations. :-)

i could say..... D people who marry will generally marry in united states and in the event that they dont the huge style would be so small it wont remember. They estimate dying and beginning on modern-day inhabitants, average existence span, and so on so those issues are taken under consideration. they have no way of understanding who strikes out of united states so i've got faith this can be the respond.
