Question

No. of donors registered ( =8000 )
rate of increase of no. of donors per half year ( =20 % )
So the no. of new registrations after 6 months ( (1 / 2 mathrm{yr})=20 / 100 times 8000 ) ( =1600 )
The total no. of registrations after ( 1 / 2 ) year ( =1600+8000 ) ( =9600 )
Then the no. of new registrations after 1 year ( =1600+20 / 100 times 9600 ) ( =1600+1920 )
( =3520 )
Total no. of registrations after 1 year ( =3520+8000 ) ( =11520 )
The no. of new registrations after ( 11 / 2 ) years ( =3520+20 / 100 times 11520 ) ( =3520+2304 )
( =5824 )
Therefore, the no. of new registrations after ( 11 / 2 ) years ( =5824 )
