One application of linear algebra is to the evolution of population
distributions over time.
For example, consider the following data about regional population
distribution in the United States.
If the population redistribution seen in this table were to continue, what
might that mean for the future? In this problem, you'll look at a Markov
chain model to explore this. First we review how such a model works:
Regional Population Shifts
