    But that doesn’t really affect the size of the population calcultion. Here is the result if you use 400 instead of 430 years:

    20,932,334,587.41886

    At 3% growth instead of 5% it would be:

    9,549,660.276350075

    At 2% growth instead of 5% it would be:

    192,826.5116997499

    The point is that in that length of time, with a significant growth that frightened the Egyptians, even with the shortend lifespans there would be a lot of people I think considering the math.
