    Population Growth

    Hey, I have to answer a sheet full of these sort of questions for Friday and I have no idea of how to do them. Here's the one I'm most stuck on:

    The following population statistics have been obtained for the city of Phnom Penh:

    Year Population (,000)
    1950 354
    1962 394
    1970 900
    1971 1200

    The question is: Develop a mathematical modelfor the population growth of Phnom Penh.

    Thanks.

    Try something like:

    p'(t)=k p(t)
