PROBLEM OF THE WEEKEND - GRADE 7
Weekend of September 18-21, 2014
When describing the growth of a population, the passage of time is sometimes described in generations, a generation
being about 30 years. One generation ago, you had 2 ancestors (your parents). Two generations ago, you had 4 ancestors
(your grandparents). Ninety years ago, you had 8 ancestors (your great-grandparents). How many ancestors
did you have 300 years ago? 900 years ago?
Organize your information

300 and 900 years!
