I need some math help. specifically in statistics. I have the population of one particular continent of my world. The population is currently 2000. I want to calculate how many people I would have in 100 and 200 years given a lifespan of 50 years and an average birthrate of 2 children per family. Anyone good at this kind of thing?

edit: if any other information would be helpful please let me know. I would like the most realistic results possible.

(1.5) ^ (10) = 1.5 * 1.5 * 1.5 * ... 1.5 = 57.6 ...

And FP / 2 = 1500 -> FP = 3000

But, that formula was faulty.

Use the other one.

FP/2 = (IP/2) * ((BR/2) ^ (Years / Gen))

so given the above numbers...

fp/2 = (2000/2) * ((1.5 to the 10th)

fp/2 = 1000 * 58

fp/2 = 5800

fp = 11,600

That's not bad using a birth rate of 3, with a generation every 20 years.
