The number of grapes on my grape vine is a three digit number. It is 7 times as much as the number of grapes on the vine last year, and 11 times the number of grapes on the vine the previous year. Next year, if I have twice as many grapes as I do this year, the number of grapes will still be a three digit number, but if I have three times as many grapes, the number of grapes will be a four digit number. If I have 21 times as many grapes, the number of grapes will be a five digit number.
