Question

A shepherd has 200 sheep with him. Find the number of sheeps with him after 3 years if the increase in number of sheeps is 8% every year.

Solution

Here, P = Number of sheeps initially = 200
A = Number of sheeps after 3 years
R = Rate of increase of number of sheeps per year = 8 %
N = 3 years

A = P `(1 + "R"/100)^"N"`

   = 200 `(1 + 8/100)^3`

    = 200 `(1 + 2/25)^3`

    = 200 `(27/25)^3`

    = 251.94

    = 252 (approx)

Hence, the number of sheeps after 3 years is 252.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
