Step 1

1 of 6The problem asked to find the relative growth rate per year $(365 \text{ days})$ $k$ using the differential equation for population

$\dfrac{dP}{dt}= kP$

where $\dfrac{dP}{dt}$ is the total increase at the rate of $1$ person every $14$ seconds and the total displayed population that day was $P = 257,313,431$.
