Village X has a Population of 68000 Which is Decreasing at the Rate of 1200 Per Year. Village Y has a Population of 42000, Which is Increasing at the Rate of 800 per Year. In How Many Years will the Population of Two Villages be Equal?

What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

Explanation

  • Village X has a population of 68000.
  • Village Y has a population of 42000.
  • The population of village X is decreasing at the rate of 1200 per year.
  • The population of village Y is increasing at the rate of 800 per year.

Let suppose both have equal population in “w” years. So

68000 – 1200w = 42000 + 800w

Through this equation we can easily determine the required number of years when the population of two villages would be equal.

To Find

Years = ?

Solution

Population of village X (given) = 68000

Population of village Y (given) = 42000

Population of village X decreasing in 1 year = 1200

Population of village X decreasing in “w” years = 1200w

Population of village Y decreasing in 1 year = 800

Population of village Y decreasing in “w” years = 800w

Now, according to the condition

68000 – 1200w = 42000 + 800w

68000 – 42000 = 2000w

26000 = 2000w

w = 26000/2000

w = 13 years answer

Conclusion

Village X has a population of 68000 which is decreasing at the rate of 1200 per year. Village Y has a population of 42000, which is increasing at the rate of 800 per year. In 13 years the population of two villages will be equal.
