1. Ignoring the absurd wording of the question ....

2000(1.15^n - 1)/.15 = 1,000,000
1.15^n - 1 = 75
1.15^n = 76
take logs of both sides and use log rules

n log 1.15 = log 76
n = log 76/log 1.15 = appr 31 years

let me know where you get 15% return in a retirement fund and I will reinvest by pension plan.
