If a government spends $9.8 billion on a population of 1.4 million. What is the government’s per capita expenditure?

(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)
