(A) $70 (B)$700
(C) $7,000 (D)$70,000
(E) $700,000 Note: 1 billion =1000 million The per capita can be calculated by dividing the government spends by the number of people. Therefore, the government's per capita expenditure is $$\frac{9.8*1000}{1.4} = 7000$$ (Option C) _________________ You've got what it takes, but it will take everything you've got If a government spends$9.8 billion on a population of 1.4 million.
