A city had a population of 1,772 at the begining of 1953 and has been growing at 5.7% per year since then. During what year will the population of the city reach 19,715,505 ?

Population increasing per year =

1772*5.7/100 = 101 per year 

No of years to reach the population  (19,715,505-1772)= 19713733

 = 19713733/101

=195185.475 years 

in 1953 +1951.185 = 3904.14 

therefor  in 3904 year the city population will reach to 19,715,505
