# What are The Population of The Town

The population of a town decrease at the rate of 4% per annum. If its present population is 57600, then the difference in population of the town two years before and after one year from now will be

- 6820
- 4608
- 7004
- 7204

**Answer: (3) 7004**

**Explanation:-**

The present population of a town = 57600

The population decreased by 4 % every year.

The population of town before one year = 57600 x 104 /100

= 59904

The population before two years = 59904 x 104/100

= 62300

The population after one year = 57600 x 96/100

= 55296

the difference in population of the town two years before and after one year = 62300 – 55296

= 7004

Hence, the answer is (3) 7004.
