The population of a small town is growing at a rate of 5% per year. If the population right now is 22 000, What will the population be 10 years from now?

To find the population 10 years from now, first you have to find how much the population increases in a year.

5% of 22,000 is how much the population would increase in a year, which is 1100 per year. Now you have how much the population increases in a year, so all you have to do is multiply it by 10, and add it to 22,000 to find the total population.

1100*10=11000

11000+22000= **33,000**
