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

Assuming the population grows exponentially

N = No exp(kt)--------(i)

No=initial population

N=population after time t

t=time interval

Double population means

N=2No ---------------(ii)

Using (ii) into (i)

2No=No exp(kt)


taking natural log both sides



t= 53 years.

It will take 53 years.
