# In 2003, the population of Zimbabwe was about 12.6 million, which was 1 million more than 4 times the population in 1950. Write and solve an equation to find the population p of Zimbabwe in 1950.

$12.6 * 10^{6} = 4 p + 10^{6} \\ (12.6*10^{6}) - 10^{6} = 4p \\ p = \frac{(12.6*10^{6}) - 10^{6}}{4} \\ p=2.9*10^{6}$
