#### Solution

Here,
P = Initial population = 25, 000
$R_1 = 4 %$
$R_2 = 5 %$
$R_3 = 8 %$
n = Number of years = 3
∴ Population after three years = P $\left( 1 + \frac{R_1}{100} \right)\left( 1 + \frac{R_2}{100} \right)\left( 1 + \frac{R_3}{100} \right)$
$= 25, 000\left( 1 + \frac{4}{100} \right)\left( 1 + \frac{5}{100} \right)\left( 1 + \frac{8}{100} \right)$
$= 25, 000\left( 1 . 04 \right)\left( 1 . 05 \right)\left( 1 . 08 \right)$
= 29, 484
Hence, the population after three years will be 29, 484.
