The population of Leavetown after 100 years would be 111,17.5681.Step-by-step explanation:Given that,

Initial Population = I = 123,000

Decreasing Rate = r = 2.375 = 0.02375

We have to find the population after 100 years. So,

n = 100

The formula to calculate the population (P) after n years with a decreasing rate r is:[tex]P = I (1-r)^{n}[/tex]

Now, put the values in this formula.

[tex]P = 123,000 (1-0.02375)^{100}[/tex]

[tex]P = 123,000 (0.97625)^{100}[/tex]

[tex]P = 11117.5681[/tex]

Hence, the population of Leavetown after 100 years would be 111,17.5681.
