11,000?

To make one of the city x minimum, we should consider max population for 10 other cities

x+10*1.1x=13,200

x= 11,000

Let max population = x
Min population = y
Let 10 cities have maximum population. 1 city has min population.

ie 10x + y = 132000 ----------------------- 1)

Max population = 10% greater than min population

ie. x = 1.1y ----------------------------- 2)

Solving these two equations, we get y = 11000

Minimum population = 11000
