In 1951, the population of India was 357 million people. By 1981 it had grown to 984 million. If the population is growing exponentially, when (in what month of what year) will the population reach 1 billion people?
How do you know what month?

I think you are talking about this post
http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1283104183
the answer was 30.477 years
which means 30 years + .477 of the next year
so I multiplied .477x12 (12 months)
to get 5.7 months
So for 5 months the 1 Billion has not been reached and we need the 6th month.
jan = 1
feb = 2
..
may = 5
june = 6
