I calculated at all in less than 2 minutes and final answer is [(51/50)^3 * (26/25)^10 * P].

current population is P

P(n)=p*(1.04)^10+(p*(1.04)^10)*(1.02)^3

Hey amolsk11,

my answer is [(51/50)^3 * (26/25)^10 * P] that is [(1.02)^3 * (1.04)^10 * P]

You are right , it should be [(1.02)^3 * (1.04)^10 * P].
Thanks for pointing out.
