Hello, I am NAtarajan. I tried solving the following problem (IIT-JEE 2000). Not able to get full solution. Can you please provide me the full solution. (Unable to substitute the initial values. I am able to get the numerator part) Thanks for your kind help. “A country has food deficit of 10%. Its population grows continuously at a rate of 3% per year. Its annual food production every year is 4% more than that of the last year. Assuming that the average food requirement per person remains constant, prove that the country will become self-sufficient in food after n years, where n is the smallest integer bigger than or equal to ( In 10 - In 9) / (In (1.04)- 0.03).” Regards NAtarajan
