Okay, So the South Carolina population, let's say, is P people, so we don't have the. In 1990 the population was 3,486,000 people, and the increase per year while is 37,400 people. And now the years since 1990. That's to know by T years. So then our outbreak model here says that key right, the population off your lineup is equal to the initial population, which is three million 486,000 plus well, um, 37,400 times t. It's good to here.
