On page 542, it states that "Assumptions of this argument would be that the population has not decreased dramatically" but I'm a bit confused. To strengthen the argument you would want to show that the population has not changed or it has decreased. To weaken the argument you would want to show that the population has increased. Hence, wouldn't an assumption of the argument be that the population has not increased dramatically? Because if the population increased dramatically then you couldn't say that residents were more likely to be robbed (they would be less likely)?

Please help!
Thank you so much!

Hi 99.9!

I love your username :-D

On that page, there's a good reason for you to be confused: I meant to say "the population has not increased dramatically" but I misspoke. I will have that changed asap!

Great eye on seeing that—you are living up to your username :-D Thanks!
