Humble noob trying to get the hang of Arcmap

So I was intrigued by GIS and I asked a professor for a subscription that he was happy to grant me. I am hoping that I might incorporate it into my healthcare major. He also gave me a list of problems to help me get better at it. I know the basics so far, but I found a problem in the worksheet that seems really cool. So for the problem I am going to be using a geodatabase called 'Austin geodatabase'. The problem is essentially asking I make a table showing the largest 15 districts with the district name, the population, the miles of road, and the number of officers. and to make a graduated color map of population and lables for the staff numbers. The rules are that in every ppolice district I would be one police officer for every 100o people and one for every 25 miles. This seems like a very complicated problem compared to the ones I have been practicing (which have been two steps at most), but extremely intriguing as I am sure that if I use this program in my field this type of problem solving would be very useful. If anyone has any pointers on how to do this please let me know. Thanks!
