Mathematician help 
2nd-May-2008 04:23 pm
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.

most fantasy games are based on the medieval era or the dark ages when the average life expectancy in europe was something like 40. that's when they came up with the idea that you ought to respect your elders. anyone who made it past 50 had to be pretty on the ball.

but they kept the saying "respect your elders" going even until now, when the oldest among us are slower and dimmer than the youngest among us.
