A trick to calculate percentages faster

To calculate % growth in population – look at the growth from 1992-1993. Its [(21-20)/20] X 100 = (1/20)X100 = 5%. Now you know that every year the growth is by 1 lakh, but the denominator base (population) is growing. For 1993-1994, its 1/21, for 1994-1995, its 1/22. So as the denominator grows in a fraction, and nominator remains constant, the value of the fraction will be lesser each time i.e. less than 5% for all coming years. So you need not calculate percentage growth for all years and waste your precious time.
