[GMAT math practice question]

The number of club X’s members is increased by 20 percent every year. If the number of members of the club X in 2000 was m, how many number of members in 2005 are greater than that of members in 2004?

A. $$(0.2)(1.2)^4m$$
B. $$(0.8)(1.2)^4m$$
C. $$(0.2)(1.2)^5m$$
D. $$(0.8)(1.2)^5m$$
E. $$(0.8)4(1.2)^4m$$

Since in 2000 the number of members was m, the number of members in 2001 = 1.2m; in 2002 = (1.2^2)m; in 2003 = (1.2^3)m; in 2004 = (1.2^4)m; and in 2005 = (1.2^5)m.

Thus, there were (1.2^5)m - (1.2^4)m = (1.2^4)m(1.2 - 1) = (1.2^4)m(0.2) more members in 2005 than in 2004.
