Population wouldn't be to increase if its caring capacity did int have enough resources to supply to more population. Also a population cant grow if it has a disease or problem that can affect the population when growing.

2. What are 2 factors that determine whether a population increases or decreases. (Use each factor in a one-sentence example).
