Q : 14 Consider the following population and year graph, find the slope of the line and using it, find what will be the population in the year 2010?
Given point A(1985,92) and B(1995,97)
Now, we know that
Therefore, the slope of line AB is
Now, the equation of the line passing through the point (1985,92) and with slope = is given by
Now, in the year 2010 the population is
Therefore, the population in the year 2010 is 104.5 crore
