# A city's population is 5 million this year the population grows by 4% each year what will the population be after two years?

The population after two years will be 5408000.

#### Explanation:

The city's population is 5000000. 4% is the same as 0.04, so multiply 5000000 by 0.04 and add it to 5000000.

$5000000 \cdot 0.04 + 5000000 = 5200000$.

This is the population after one year. Repeat the process again to get the population after two years.

$5200000 \cdot 0.04 + 5200000 = 5408000$.
