# People from villages move to cities to seek employment opportunities. How many years will it take for 1216 people from a village to move to a city at a rate of 152 per year? Find the number of people who move to cities in 3 years.

**Given :**

The number of people $=1216$.

Rate of people moving from villages to cities $=$ 152 per year.

**To do :**

We have to find the years taken to move 1216 people from the village and the number of people moved in 3 years.

**Solution :**

This implies,

The number of people moving to cities in 3 years $= Rate \times Time = 152 \times 3 = 456$

The time is taken for 152 people to move from villages to cities $=$ 1 year

The time taken for 1216 people to move from villages to cities $= \frac{Number of people}{Rate} = \frac{1216}{152} = 8 years$.

**Therefore, Time taken for 1216 people to move from village to city is 8 years. And 456 moved in 3 years.**
