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)

exp(kt)=2

taking natural log both sides

kt=ln(2)=0.69

t=0.69/k=0.69/0.013

t= 53 years.

It will take 53 years.
