hmm, let's count, when will this decade end?
in 9 years?

oh I think I got it now :)
if the consumption increases 11% ------> every 1 year then how much will it increase (x)-------> in 9 years? are you aware of this way? we have the following now: 11%---------> 1 year x (%) --------> 9 years cross multiply and you'll get : x(%) = (11)% (9) x = 99% I guess, I'm not sure though :) correct me please if I'm wrong ^_^
still not right. dont worry about it.
does a decade end in 9 years?
well a decade is 10 years
