#### Slide 8 -Slide

Population density
• Bevolkingsdichtheid
• The number of inhabitants divided by the surface area of a country, measured per square kilometre

#### Slide 9 -Slide

Calculating the population density
Calculate the population density of country X using the following data:

• surface area = 200,000 km2
• number of people is 500,000

#### Slide 10 -Slide

Calculating the population density
Calculate the population density of country X using the following data:
• surface area = 200,000 km2
• number of people is 500,000

500,000 divided by 200,000 = 2.5 inhabitants/km2
