In this item, we mark March 31, 2009 as our base or time zero. The equation that can be generated from the given first set of data for 2009 and 2012 is,

P = 197 + (901 - 197) x/3

Where P is the population and x is the number of years. Determining the value of x, we get an answer of x = 234.67

For n = 5.

P = 197 + 234.67 (5) = 1370.3333

Thus, the number of users on March 31, 2004 is approximately 1370.33 million monthly users.
