How Many People Were There When the Flood Came
And they begat sons and daughters;
An Average of 10 per male
Using an average of 5 men per 10 people born.
Starting with Adam having 10 Children in 800 years let us do the math
There are 10 generations from Adam to the Flood
1. 10 divided by 2 equals 5 men times 10 per man equals 50
Now subtract the total number of people from the first 7 generations which died before the flood came, which adds up to 195,310.
19,538,250 minus 195,310 equals 19,342,940 at the time of the flood
These are estimated numbers not exact figures
