Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let the equation of population growth is N(t) = No  * 2^(t/a)

292000= 146000* 2^(18/a)  ; or    2= 2^(18/a) ; solving we get a = 18

hence  we can write  ; 500000=146000* (2)^(t/18)

or 3.42 = 2^(t/18) ;     soling we get  t = 31.93 years

hence Answer : 32 years
