Moore's law says that the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on a silicon chip doubles every two years. In 1990, a typical CPU contained about $1,\!000,\!000$ transistors. According to Moore's law, how many transistors did a typical CPU contain in the year 2000?

If the number doubles every two years, then we have five doublings  from 1990 to 2000....so we have

 

1,000,000 (2)^5  =  

 

32,000,000  in year 2000
