the population will be 799,500 people
1. 0.0875 x 390,000 = 34,125
2. 34,125 x 12 = 409,500
3. 409,500 + 390,000 = 799,500
2 being the y intercept graph at (0,2)
then rise over run - up 5 over to the right 1
if an object is in motion it will not stop because of inertia, but rather friction and gravity acting upon the object.
hence newton's first law (short version) an object in motion will stay in motion until acted on by an outside force. (i.e friction, gravity.)
