How to Solve Growth and Depreciation Word Problems Easily

Growth: If the numeric value increase of a original value P at rate r then after n years the final value A is as below

Value after n year = P ((1 + r/100) nth year

Growth only = Value after n year – original value

Depreciation : If the numeric value decrease of a original value P at rate r then after n years the final value A is as below

Value after n year = P ((1 – r/100) nth year

Depreciation only =  original value – Value after n year

Que-1: A town has 15625 inhabitants. If the population of this increases at the rate of 4% per annum, find the number of inhabitants of the town at the end of 3 years.

Solution- Present population (P) = 15625
Rate of increase (r) = 4% p.a.
Period (n) = 3 years
We know that
Population after 3 years = 𝑃(1+𝑟/100)^𝑛
Substituting the values
= 15625(1+4/100)^3
By further calculation
= 15625 × 26/25 × 26/25 × 26/25
= 17576 Ans.

Que-2: The population of a town is increasing at the rate of 10% per annum. If its present population is 36300, find : (i) its population after 2 years,  (ii) its population 2 years ago.

Solution- Present population = 36300
r = 10%
(i) n = after 2 years
= 36300×(1+10/100)^2
= 36300 × 11/10 × 11/10
= 36300 × 121/100
= 43923 Ans.

(ii) n = 2 year ago
= 36300/(1-10/100)^2
= 36300 × 10/11 × 10/11
= 36300 × 100/121
= 30000 Ans.

Que-3: The present population of a town is 176400. If the rate of growth in its population is 5% per annum, find : (i) its population 2 years hence,  (ii) its population one year ago.

Solution-(i) Present population (P0​) = 176,400
Annual growth rate (r) = 5%
Number of years (t) = 2
Using the formula:
𝑃(2) = 176,400(1+5/100)²
𝑃(2) = 176,400(1+0.05)²
𝑃(2) = 176,400(1.05)²
𝑃(2) = 176,400 × 1.1025
P(2) = Rs194481 Ans.

(ii) Present population (P0​) = 176,400
Annual growth rate (r) = 5%
Number of years (t) = -1 (since we are going back one year)
Using the formula:
𝑃(−1) = 176,400(1+5/100)‾¹
𝑃(−1) = 176,400(1+0.05)‾¹
𝑃(−1) = 176,400(1.05)‾¹
𝑃(−1) = 176,400 × (1/1.05)​
𝑃(−1) = 176,400 × 0.95238
P(-1) = 168000 Ans.

Que-4: Three years ago, the population of a city was 50000. If the annual increase during three successive years be 5%, 8% and 10% respectively, find the present population of the city.

Solution-Initial Population: 50,000
The population increases by 5% during the first year.
Population after 1 year = 50,000×(1+5/100)
= 50,000 × 1.05
= 52,500
The population increases by 8% during the second year.
Population after 2 years = 52,500×(1+8/100)
= 52,500 × 1.08
= 56,700
The population increases by 10% during the third year.
Population after 3 years = 56,700×(1+10/100)
= 56,700 × 1.10
= 62,370 Ans.

Que-5: A farmer has an increase of 12.5% in the output of wheat in his farm every year. This year, he produced 2916 quintals of wheat. What was his annual production of wheat 2 years ago ?

Solution- Let us Assume 2yrs ago as X, then next years as Y
And the current year as Z, which outcome is = 2916 Quintals
Y’th year outcome will be increased by 12.5% from X’th year
Then, Y = (12.5*X/100) + X
= 0.125*X + X
= 1.125 X ——> 1
Z’th Year outcome will be increase by 12.5% from Y’th year
Then, Z = (12.5*Y/100) + Y —–> 2
Now Substitute 1 in 2 we get
Z = ((12.5 * 1.125 * X) / 100) + 1.125 * X
2916 = (0.140625 * X) + 1.125 * X
2916 = 1.265625 X
X = 2304 Quintals Ans.

Que-6: The population of a town is 64000. If the annual birth rate is 11.7% and the annual death rate is 4.2%, calculate the population of the town after 3 years.

Solution- Present population = 64,000
Birth rate = 10.7% (increase), death rate = 3.2% (decrease)
R = total increase in population (%) = 10.7−3.2 = 7.5
Population after n years = p(1+R/100)^n
After 3 years = 64,0000(1+7.5/100)^3
∴ Population = 79507 Ans.

Que-7: A mango tree was planted 2 years ago. The rate of its growth is 20% per annum. If at present, the height of the tree is 162cm, what it was when the tree was planted ?

Solution-Let the height of the tree when it was planted be H cm.
The tree grows by 20%, so after one year the height becomes:
= H×1.20
The tree grows again by 20%, so after the second year the height becomes:
= H×1.20×1.20 = H × (1.20)²
Given that the current height is 162 cm, we can set up the equation:
= H × (1.20)² = 162
Solving for H:
= H×1.44 = 162
= H = 162/1.44​
H = 112.5 Ans.

Que-8: Two years ago, the population of a village was 4000. During next year it increased by 6% but due to an epidemic, it decreased by 5% in the following year. What is its population now ?

Solution- Initial Population (2 years ago): 4000
The population increased by 6% during the first year.
Population after 1 year = 4000×(1+6/100)
= 4000×1.06
= 4240
The population decreased by 5% during the second year.
Population after 2 years = 4240×(1−5/100)
= 4240×0.95
= 4028
Thus, the current population of the village is: 4028 Ans.

Que-9: The count of bacteria in a culture grows by 10% during first hour, decreases by 8% during second hour and again increases by 12% during third hour. If the count of bacteria in the sample is 13125000, what will be the count of bacteria after 3 hours ?

Solution- 𝑅1 = 10
𝑅2 = −8
𝑅3 = 12
P = Original count of bacteria = 13, 125, 000
We know that:
𝑃(1+𝑅1/100)(1−𝑅21/00)(1+𝑅3/100)
∴ Bacteria count after three hours = 13,125,000(1+10/100)(1−8/100)(1+12/100)
= 13,125,000(1.10)(0.92)(1.12)
= 14,876,400
Thus, the bacteria count after three hours will be 14, 876, 400.

Que-10: In a factory, the production of scooters was 40000 per year, which rose to 57600 in 2 years. Find the rate of growth per annum.

Solution-  We will use the compound growth formula:
P = P0​(1+r)^n
P is the final production amount (57,600),
P0​ is the initial production amount (40,000),
r is the annual growth rate,
n is the number of years (2)
57600 = 40000(1+r)²
57600/40000 ​= (1+r)²
1.44 = (1+r)²
√1.44 ​= 1+r
1.2 = 1+r
r = 1.2-1
r =  0.2
Convert the decimal to a percentage:
r = 0.2×100% = 20% Ans.

Que-12: The value of a machine depreciates 10% annually. Its present value is Rs64800. Find : (i) its value after 2 years   (ii) its value 2 year ago.

Solution-  value of machine (V) = 64800
r = 10%, n = 2yrs
(i) value of machine after n yrs = V(1-R/100)^n
value of machines after 2 yrs = 64800(1-10/100)²
= 64800 X 9/10 X 9/10
= 52,488 Ans.
(ii) value of machine n yrs ago = V(1-r /100)^-n
= 64800(1-10/100)¯²
= 64800 x 10/9 x 10 /9
= 80000 Ans.

Que-13: A refrigerator was purchased one year ago for Rs20000. Its value depreciates at the rate of 15% per annum. Find :  (i) its present value    (ii) its value after 1 year.

Solution- Cost price of Refrigerator 20,000
Rate of decrease is 15%
(i) Decreased amount is (15/100) × 20,000 = 3,000
So the present price is 20,000 − 3,000 = 17,000 Ans.
(ii) Decrease amount a year after is (15/100) × 17,000 = 2550
So the price is 17,000 − 2,550 = 14,450Rs Ans.

Que-14: A machine depreciates each year at 8% of its value in the beginning of the year. If its value be Rs57500 at the end of the year 2015, find : (i) its value at the end of the year 2014  (ii) its value at the end of the year 2016

Solution- (i) Let the value of machine at the end of 2014 be x
We are given that A machine depreciates each year at 8% of its value in the beginning of the year.
So, Value of machine in 2015 = x – 8%x = x – 0.08x = 0.92x
We are given that its value  be 57500 at the end of the year 2015.
So, 0.92x = 57500
x = 57500/0.92
= Rs62500 Ans.

(ii) So,  its value at the end of the year 2016.​
= 57500 – (8%)(57500)
=57500 – (0.08)(57500 )
= Rs52900 Ans.

Que-15: The value of a machine depreciates at the rate of 16*(2/3)% per annum. It was purchased 3 years ago. If its present value is Rs62500, find its purchased value.

Solution- r = 16*(2/3)% = 50/3%
Next, convert this percentage into a decimal for ease of calculation.
50/3% = (50/3) x (1/100) = 1/6
This means that each year the machine retains 1−1/6 = 5/6​ of its value from the previous year.
Let’s denote the purchase value of the machine as P. The value after 3 years, denoted as V, can be given by:
𝑉 = 𝑃(5/6)³
We know that:
V = 62500
Therefore: 62500 = P(5/6​)³
Calculate (5/6)³:
(5/6)³ = 5³/6³ = 125/216​
Now, substituting back:
62500 = P × 125/216​
Solving for P:
𝑃 = 62500 × 216/125​
Simplify the multiplication:
P = 62500 × 1.728
P = 108000 Ans.
