    Answer:

    The population in 4 years will be 33,000.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    I got this because 8% of 25,000 is 2,000 so what this mean is that in one year the population increase by 2,000 since the question ask for 4 years,              4x 2,000 = 8,000, so in 4 year the population increase by 8,000 making the population 33,000 because before the 4 years the population was already 25,000 and in the 4 years the 8,000 more people come making the population then 33,000.
