You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Open the workbook called Tables in the above folder, and go to the Populations worksheet:

Close this workbook down, and create a new workbook.
